The exciting lessons in Sunday School are planned to help your Preschool and Pre-K child(ren) learn about Jesus and His Church. The Sunday School program uses the Allelu! curriculum from Our Sunday Visitor.  Allelu! takes a Christ-centered, hands-on approach to learning using strong Catholic teachings. Lessons include stories, music, prayer, crafts, games, and activities. It also includes a take-home piece to aid in further discussion with your family outside of the classroom. Allelu! has a great website that you can access to learn more about the curriculum at www.allelu.com.

Sunday School takes place September through April from 9:30-10:30 a.m. following the school calendar. Students must be the appropriate age by September 15, 2019 (Age 3/Preschool or Age 4/Pre-K) and must be potty-trained.

Special Classroom Helpers

In order for you to share in the experience of Sunday School with your children, we will ask you to serve as a “special helper” in your child(ren)’s classroom twice during the year. This opportunity is open to parents, grandparents, aunts/uncles, a special neighbor, or siblings over the age of 16. We believe this experience will help you grow closer to your child(ren) as they grow in their faith and it will also help our dedicated Sunday School catechists by having some extra helping hands on a regular basis. A sign-up link will be provided at the beginning of the school year.


Volunteer Opportunities

Our Youth Faith Formation programs rely on parents, families and parishioners as volunteers to support our children as they grow in their faith. Each of the volunteer roles are either 100% Tuition Waived or 50% Tuition Refunded.
