Faith Formation Calendar February-May 2024

Faith Formation Calendar February-May 2024

Mission: To teach Christ and be Christ to others.

Vision: To help parents be the primary educators of their children by helping them review their student’s work and accompany them every weekend in the celebration of the Holy Mass, the other Sacraments, Christian service and the study of our Catholic faith.

*In case of inclement weather, class cancellations will correspond with Goodhue Public School decisions. Any other changes will be communicated through email and Flocknote.

Grades 1-6 class schedule—Wednesdays from 2:15-3:30 pm at Holy Trinity:

2:15-2:20: Students arrive and sit in their designated pews while catechists take attendance.

2:20-2:40: Fr. McCabe leads prayer that parallels the Liturgy of the Word (the first part of the Mass), helping the students become familiar with Mass prayers, but without all the readings and only a short reflection. Maria Schultz will call parents whose students are not present and have not informed parish office of absence.

2:30-3:30: Catechists teach the lesson for the day and dismiss students after a short prayer at 3:30 pm.
