Family Program

 “Parents are the primary catechists for their children”…

St Lawrence Family Program

Families with children in grades 1*, 2* and 3 are invited to participate in St Lawrence Family Faith Formation Program.  Students entering 4th and 5th grade who have a sibling in the Family Program are also invited to participate. 

The Family program is designed to encourage and equip parents to live and teach their children the Catholic Faith. A variety of learning opportunities are made available: in the classroom, at home and as part of our faith community.

Features of the Program:

  • Flexibility in scheduling for busy families. Saturday and Sunday options are provided each month for families to choose from.
  • Parents learn and grow in the faith so that they in turn become primary teachers of their children.
  • Families participate in home-based learning through a variety of learning approaches including: discussion, crafts, direct instruction and scripture study. 
  • Programs are scheduled to support family participation in weekly Mass and encourage regular prayer. 

Families choose one session per month from the designated months on he following days and times:
