Family-Integrated Religious Education (Grades 1-5)

 Program Overview:

Students in grades 1-5 attend Family-Integrated Religious Education (Hearts on FIRE) at the SFA Grand site school which provide the basic foundations of our faith. Students will learn what it means to develop a relationship with Jesus, gain a basic understanding of God’s Word in Scripture, and of the Mass. During this time, second-grade students also prepare for their First Reconciliation and Communion.  Parents are expected to participate in the monthly family nights.

The online registration form for Grades 1-12 Religious Education can be found here: Google Form - Faith Formation Registration .  

Elementary Religious Education will start on Monday, September 10th from 6:15-7:30 at the Grand Site School.
