LOFT (Learning Our Faith Together) is family catechesis for children in grades K through 5. LOFT is the 1st and 3rd Sunday’s of each month beginning September 15. Families will gather with other families in Francis Hall from 9:35 – 10:40 to learn more about their faith. The theme for this year’s LOFT sessions will be God’s Amazing Love. We will study the sacraments and the Mass as signs of God’s love for us.
Families do need to register to attend LOFT. Register HERE or at the office or at a LOFT session. Families are asked to bring a supply bag to each session with pens, pencils, crayons, markers, scissors and glue sticks that can be used by the family for projects during our LOFT sessions. These don’t need to be new. Last year’s old school supplies will be great. Each family member does not need their own LOFT bag – just one for the family to share is great.
The fee for LOFT is $60/family for the entire year. We will also have a group called “Little Lofters” which is for 3 year olds – preschool. There is an additional $10 fee/family for Little Lofters. There is a place to register for Little Lofters on the registration form.
Families also need to fill out an emergency form for each child attending LOFT or Little Lofters. A copy of the form is available HERE.
If your child needs baptism or their First Eucharist, there are additional classes on the 2nd and 4th Sunday’s beginning in October. You need to register for those also. Sacramental preparation will be on the 2nd and 4th Sunday’s of each month beginning in October. Parents must attend an information session prior to their child beginning sacramental prep. These sessions will be either Sunday September 22 or Sunday September 29 from 9:45 – 10:45 AM in O’Reilly Hall. You can fill out a registration form for your child HERE.
LOFT needs lot of willing Disciples to help out each week. Older children as well as any parish adult are invited to help. Click HERE for a listing of how you might help out at LOFT.
