the fast-paced 8-class series designed by the famous (and funny) Mart Hart.  It is written for Middle-Schoolers, but only you know where your child is faith wise...  Some children in 4th and 5th grade find him (and the class) interesting, and so feel free to sit in.  If your 4th and 5th grader feels it's "not for them," just click out of the link...  But if they're enjoying it, welcome!  Feel free to just listen without homework. 

Children in grades 6-8, stop by the confession room at St. Anthony's anytime (the church is always unlocked), and pick up the workbook that goes with the series (it's on the windowsill).

Whatever your child's age,

what matters most is growing their faith.  

 

Our class goals will be the same for all ages--

to offer and remind the children

--that Jesus loves them,

--Catholic life is awesome and fulfilling,

--and that learning about their faith is an

   interesting & fun journey...  

No "turn to page seven and read" type classes here.  Our classes will offer intriguing facts, conversations to challenge their faith, and offer ways to season their days with meaningful faith-building opportunities. 

Our Catholic Faith is NOT BORING! 

                           So neither are our classes! 

                   SEE YOU AT REGISTRATION !!

JESSE TREE !!!

The Time to Start a JESSE TREE is before the Christmas Season.   If we make ornaments all year long based on the bible stories we learn, we'll have a set by Christmas...the busy Christmas Season is the time to pray, enjoy, and reflect on Jesus' life depicted in our ornaments, as we once again "start at the beginning" - Jesus' birth.  

Check out Catholic Sprouts

AMAZING IDEA
