Registration for Young Disciples

September 27, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Young Disciples is an interactive faith program for children in Grades one through nine. Children are divided by age, and the older group will take on a more active service role in our church as well as taking part in great discussions, fun games and plenty of fellowship. The Catholic faith is taught with enthusiasm in an environment where children can make friends with others who share their values. The faith is presented in a fun and interesting way with compact lessons and related activities like crafts, games, music, videos and guest speakers. Each evening begins with prayer and song and then children rotate through the different classrooms with a lesson in one, crafts in another, and games/activities/snack in the last one. The program follows the cycles of the church, providing a wide range of topics from the Bible and church feast days. The inspirational lives of the saints are also studied and highlighted with an annual “All Saints Day Party” where children come dressed up as their favorite saint. Young Disciples is the perfect setting for a whole family’s faith to grow. Volunteers are thrilled to find that all of the lesson plans are fortified with plenty of background information for the instructor. Regular handouts allow the children to share what they have learned with their families. We would love to see new faces in both children and adult/youth helpers. We can not run this program without the help of adults, so please consider joining our team. Youth joining us can use their time for the required volunteer hours they need for their religion programs in high school. Young Disciples meets each Wednesday night from 6:30 to 8 PM in the church basement. Registration Night will be Sept. 27th from 7:00 to 8 PM in the parish basement with the first session beginning October 4 $40 per child, or $100 for 3 or more children from one family.
