Parents are the primary catechists for their children”…

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

  • Families participate in home-based learning through a variety of learning approaches including: discussion, crafts, direct instruction and scripture study.
