Children's Catechesis (PK - 6th)
The first catechists in any child’s life are the family members with whom he or she lives. What happens at home – both positive and negative – provides lessons for life. In the family, faith is shared as part of the unfolding of daily life. The home or “domestic church” provides a real place in which a child learns to live his or her faith as well as understanding it.
Our goal is to create a program of lifelong faith formation that is centered in and flows out of the events of Church life. It embraces all ages and generation, promotes faith growth at home and promotes participation in Church life.
If your child has special needs that require assistance in the classroom, please contact Laura Nelson at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd at St. Francis!
Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is a religious education curriculum for ages 3-12 that builds upon a child’s natural sense of wonder and their need to learn through rich sensory experiences in order to help the child fall in love with God. St. Francis of Assisi is excited to currently host Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS) Level I (for ages 4-6) and Level 2 (for ages 7-9). Because this is a program that requires significant training and preparation to implement, spaces are limited. Watch the video below for more information!
If you’re interested in learning more about this program, contact Laura Nelson at email@example.com or by phone at 817-481-2685 ext 241.

Homeschool Online Catechesis Option
Parents are the primary educators and catechists in the life of their children. Ideally, all catechesis would take place firstly in the home. We are happy to provide resources for parents to guide their children directly in growing and maturing in the faith. For more information about this option, click the button below.
