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, scripture, prayer, crafts, and a home activity piece to aide 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 October through April from 9:30-10:30am. Classes are held every Sunday (besides one Sunday a month) and not over Thanksgiving, Christmas, or Spring Break.
Students must be the appropriate age by September 15, 2018 and must be potty-trained.
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.
