Faith Formation for Children and Youth

“God always knocks at the door of hearts. He likes to do this. It comes from His heart. But, do you know what He likes best? To knock on the doors of families and find families that are united, to find families that love each other, to find the families that bring up their children and educate them and help them to keep going forward and that creates a society of goodness, of truth, and of beauty.”    Pope Francis, September 29, 2015

Finding God

Annunciation Catechesis programs use the Finding God: Our Response to God’s Gifts curriculum that integrates the fundamental themes of the Catechism of the Catholic Church as well as Scripture and Catholic social teachings. Embodying the spirituality of St. Ignatius of Loyola, Finding God provides all the tools to engage the whole child – mind, heart, and soul – uniquely guiding children to practice prayer and reflection, to explore Scripture, and to find God in all things. The curriculum fully engages children in the full teachings of the Catholic Church, inviting them to discover the beauty of their faith.

Traditional Catechesis

Annunciation Traditional Catechesis is offered for grades 1-5 each Wednesday at 4:15pm or grades 1-8 at 6:15pm. Each session is 1 hour and 15minutes.  In-person sessions begin August 24th.  

Family Catechesis

Annunciation Family Catechesis uses the Finding God curriculum to combine parish-based group meetings (parent/guardian & child) and grade-specific instruction by trained catechists with at-home sessions guided by parents.  The first in-person session is September 12th.

Sunday School and Sunday Kindergarten

Sunday School & Kindergarten, is offered at our Parish Preschool during the 10:00am Mass for those families who register.  Sessions begin Sunday, August 28th.
