Pre K- 7th Grade Curriculum-
The curriculum we use for our Pre-K to 7th grades is the Pflaum Gospel Weeklies Faith Formation Program. Each week our students learn, through an age appropriate program, about what will happen in the Gospel at Mass the next Sunday. These lessons build on the everyday experiences of the children and make the Gospel come to life! The completed lessons are sent home each week so the whole family can better share the experience of the Gospel teachings.
