K-6 Family Catechesis

Welcome St. Mark and St. Luke families! Through our Family Catechesis program, we support each other in living out our vocation as Christian families: accepting the life of Jesus Christ given to us in the sacraments and making it present in our homes through prayer and acts of love for each other.

Join us this year as we focus on leading our families in prayer!

Our 2021-22 Theme:

Christian Prayer

God the Father loves us and desires our love. In order to respond to His love, we must nurture a life of prayer. Jesus came down to earth to reveal His Father to us and to save us from our sins. His Holy Spirit lives in our hearts and moves us to pray, so that we may know and love the Heart of Jesus and the Heart of the Father.

Program Materials

We will use A Family of Faith books from Sophia Institute Press. They are intended for families with children in kindergarten through sixth grade, but interested families with younger and older children are also welcome.

Program Structure

Families meet once a month following the 9 am Sunday Mass. Children have classroom time with their peers, learning about the month’s topics, while parents prepare to bring those topics into the home.

Families are divided into four groups of about a dozen each, with each group meeting on a different Sunday. All families are invited to gather together for parish-wide activities throughout the year.

Please sign up to receive a full calendar.

Enrollment can be found under the Registration tab.
