Welcome to St. Francis de Sales Faith Formation Process. The parish staff and all those who minister as

catechists and classroom aides look forward to your participation and are eager to share faith with you and your children.

Schedule: Due to COVID 19 our 20-21 Faith Formation will be as follow:

Middle School FF

New for 2020-2021, the calendars for High School Faith Formation Confirmation (HSFF) will only show the first half of the Faith Formation (FF) year.  We will be re-evaluating our approach prior to publishing the second half of the HSFF year.  Both the MSFF and the HSFF approach for the fall of 2020-2021, will incorporate synchronous and asynchronous learning.

Middle School Faith Formation (MSFF) – Classes will be given assignments (reading, watching video, etc) to complete independently at home in preparation for a weekly virtual gathering (per the attached MSFF Calendar).   Our Calendar is set up so we have the capability to easily replace the virtual gathering with an in-person class in the Education Center, if at any time the restrictions change so we can safely meet in person.

We will have a MSFF parent/student orientation on Sept 15th at 7pm via zoom, to clarify the expectations and answer any questions.

Please Register in advance for the MSFF Parent/student meeting:

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

 

You can always contact Diane Lewis if you have questions, comments or concerns regarding MSFF or HSFF!  I look forward to seeing everyone (via zoom) at the parent orientations.
