Faith in Our Families



Fun things are happening!  Here's what you need to know...

One of the unique aspects of our school is our ability to incorporate faith into everyday learning.  Faith is integrated into the formation of the whole person, not treated as something separate from the rest of life.  We know that faith begins and is nurtured, most importantly, at home. It is also strengthened through the community. As the first and primary educators of your child(ren), we want to do everything in our power to support you and your family on your journey of faith! 

Our First Event:  Mass & Hike on Sunday, November 3rd

Meet at St. Mary's and attend 9:00am Mass together, then head over to Whitnall Park Picnic Area #7 (see map here).  We'll meet in the parking lot across from the playground at 10:30 for a kid-friendly hike.  Please bring a water bottle and wear appropriate footwear as we will be walking trails through the woods. Head back to St. Mary's after to enjoy the Boy Scout pancake breakfast!  Questions?  Contact Sarah Jensen at srjensen8@yahoo.com.

Check out our Newsletter!  

Every month we will publish a short newsletter containing tips on attending church with children, background information on parts of the mass, prayer requests, etc.  A paper copy will be sent home each month (1 per family) and you can view all of them anytime using the links to the right.  Have ideas for the newsletter?  Contact Annemarie Wood at mrsannemariewood@yahoo.com.

Join Kid's Club!

Kid's Club is a fun way to encourage weekend Mass attendance with your kids.  Modeled after the public library summer reading program, kids record their Mass attendance on a simple form and turn it in for their choice of prizes (ex. faith inspired books, jewelry, stickers, etc).  If you attend a church other than St. Mary - that still counts!  Students in ALL grades are welcome and encouraged to participate.  To join, simply start filling out the Kid's Club form!  Instructions are on the form.  A link to print at home is to the right and paper copies are available in the kiosk outside the school office.  Questions?  Contact Martin Devaney at devaney@protomail.com or Becky Barrette at rebekahl.kraus@gmail.com.
