With the safety of our children, volunteer catechists, and parish community in mind, Faith Formation classes will not be taking place in the Parish Center. All classes will be conducted online and require parent assistance for October, November, December and January 2021. In January 2021, we will reevaluate the COVID risks to determine if Faith Formation classes can safely be held in the Parish Center.
WHEN CLASSES ARE ABLE TO BEGIN IN THE PARISH CENTER, THE STUDENT WILL NEED:
Each student will receive a religion book that must be carried to class and then carried home, when we are able to have Parish Center classes. Due to the Covid-19 virus, no books can be kept in the Parish Center. Additionally, each student will need to bring supplies for Parish Center classes. Due to Covid-19, supplies can no longer be shared.
STUDENT SUPPLY LIST FOR K-5
Each K-5 student now needs to bring these supplies for every Parish Center class.
1 large Elmer’s All Purpose Glue Stick (.77 oz)
1 Elmer’s Glue All (4 oz)
1 box of crayons (16 per box – no larger)
2 sharpened pencils (no sharpeners allowed; please sharpen at home; no mechanical pencils)
Blunt edge scissors
A soft, zippered pencil case with above supplies inside (no boxes)
STUDENT SUPPLY LIST FOR GRADE 6
Each 6th grade student needs to bring a pen along with their Religion book for every Parish Center class.
SUNDAY MASS ATTENDANCE
St. Elizabeth’s Faith Formation Program requires attendance at Sunday Mass. Every lesson builds upon the experience of actively and fully participating in Sunday Mass every week. It is very confusing and counterproductive when a child is taught a mixed message: we are Catholic and Catholics participate at Sunday Mass, but our family doesn’t. The Mass is “the source and summit of the Christian life” and as so we must be faithful to Jesus’ command to “do this in memory of me.” At the baptism of your child, you accepted the responsibility of training them in the practice of the faith and to bring them up to keep God’s commandments. As followers of Jesus, therefore, you are called to make Sunday Mass a priority in your family life. Mass is your excuse for missing everything else!
ONLINE LEARNING MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
To complete work in the online Learning Management System and to get appropriate credit,
the student must use an email that has first and last name. It is suggested that an email is created for the exclusive use of the Faith Formation program. An email must match the name that the student is registered under.
