Family-Integrated Religious Education (Grades 1-5)
Register now for Faith Formation for 2020-21!
We invite all families with youth to register in the upcoming months for the 2020-21 faith formation year. All families with children not attending Catholic schools are encouraged and expected to have their children participate in faith formation, but we also gladly welcome and encourage participation from our Catholic school families also. This year at Edge we will be primarily focusing on the Catholic Church and the Sacraments.
The link to register for faith formation can be found here. Cost for faith formation is $90/youth. Payment may be submitted by cash, check, or an online payment through WeShare on the parish website. If you have any questions, please contact Michelle Peters (Grades 1-5) or Elizabeth Gruenke (Grades 6-12).
You can read our faith formation registration letter here. This letter also contains changes to Faith Formation in regards to COVID-19 in order to keep our youth, teens, volunteers, and staff safe. Please know that recommendations may change based on new/evolving information. If you choose to have your child participate in faith formation at home, please select that option on the online registration form.
We also invite you to stay posted to the various youth and family ministry events happening. These activities will be promoted through the parish and youth ministry Facebook and Instagram pages, the parish website, and the bulletin. You can also receive updates on youth and family ministry activities by texting @sfa-youth to 81010 for text reminders.
Hearts on FIRE Program Overview
Hearts on FIRE is our faith formation program for youth in Grades 1-5. Hearts on FIRE is a model of faith formation for elementary school students that involves helping youth encounter Jesus Christ through scripture. Every week youth have the opportunity to grow in knowledge of faith and a relationship with Jesus by exploring one or more of the upcoming Sunday Mass readings. Hearts on FIRE also consists of regular "family nights" in which youth are joined by their parents and possibly siblings to grow as households of faith. Hearts on FIRE seeks to deepen a middle school student’s understanding of their relationship with Christ, and our need for Him in our lives.
LOCATION: St. Francis of Assisi Grand Site School Building
TIME: Mondays from 6:15-7:30PM from September-May. (Youth are welcome to join during the year!)
