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 October through April from 9:30-10:30 a.m. Classes are held all but one Sunday a month with breaks over Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Spring Break.
Students must be the appropriate age by September 15, 2019 (Age 3, Preschool or Age 4, Pre-K) 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.
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. If you are interesting in learning more about the volunteer opportunities, please visit Youth Faith Formation Volunteer Opportunities.
For more information or if you are interested in volunteering, please contact Jill Klubek-Alonzo, Early Childhood Faith Formation Coordinator, at 440-1030 ext. 158 or JAlonzo@saintfrancischurch.org.
