General Information

Mass Reflection 1-2

Mass Reflection 3-4

Mass Reflection 5-6

Mass Reflection 7-8

Tuition: Tuition for the grade 1-8 classroom program and the high school program will remain $90 per child with a family maximum of $325. The Family faith formation program is $90 per family.

Attendance: Perfect attendance is best, but if your child will be absent, please call Trista prior to class time at 608-320-2468. For Grades 1-8: If your child is absent, have them read the chapter and complete the chapter review before the next class. Each class builds on the next. For Family Program: Please contact Trista on how to make up the class.

Mass Attendance: Weekly Mass attendance is expected for all students in Faith Formation!! Parents please make every effort to be at Mass each weekend. Parents set the example. We can not expect the students to take faith formation seriously if we do not ourselves take our faith seriously. Jesus is present in the Eucharist for us each week! We want the children to avail of this incredible blessing.

Text Reminder: For faster and more efficient communication, we will be sending text messages. Your number will not be visible to any other person in the group text and you will only get text messages sent from Trista and Maureen, not from other group members.

Safety: Adult Hall Monitors will supervise entry to and exit from the church building during class.

Faith Enrichment Points: We will continue to have the Faith Enrichment Points. Points can be earned by volunteering for and participating in parish events. Each child should earn 20 points.

Class Mass: Each grade level will be assigned one Sunday Mass that they as a class will help to plan and will serve as greeters, ushers, gift bearers, choir and lectors (for older grades). It is expected that each student will attend these Masses. Please mark your calendar.

New Family Faith Formation!

For Families with children grades 3K to 8

Family Faith Formation: Open to families with students who are in 3K through grade 8. Siblings under age 3 can attend with the family. High school siblings can attend with their family, but would still need to attend the high school classes. If your grade 1-8 student is attending family faith formation, they do not need to attend the grade 1-8 classroom formation. Parents (both if possible) must attend with the students. If parents cannot attend with the child, grandparent(s) may attend with the student. Please indicate this on the registration form.
