Family Faith Formation

Family Faith Formation!!! 

In response to the directives given to us by the arch diocese and restrictions we may have on how we are able to hold faith formation this year, we have made some big and wonderful changes to our Faith Formation Program at St. Clare and St. Thomas! See our VIDEO HERE !! 
 

Covid Considerations

We recognize directives regarding classroom learning for this fall are very fluid at this time.  Our primary objective will always be to provide the safest environment possible as well as a dynamic learning opportunity for all.  Please be assured we are working hard to offer options that are in alignment with all Archdiocesan, CDC and State directives.  We ask for your patience and understanding as we monitor and adapt to the information in the coming months. Please see our separate Faith Formation Covid Updates page for up to date information and policies as we have them. 
 

Once a month Session!

Each family will choose a once a month session to attend with all their students grades 1-11 (See 3K-5K page for info about that age group).  Sunday Sessions will include Mass. During the class part, students will be separated into small groups by age for their lesson. We are also delighted to offer a session for parents during the students' class time. 
 

Session Options

 
 
Please see this September Calendar for the specific dates in September
*We will have a 50 person per session Maximum. 
** Please see this December Calendar changes in schedule due to Christmas.
 

Fees

Tuition per student are as follows:
 
**For grades 7-11 tuition includes the retreat cost (Spiritus for 7th-10th Grade, Confirmation retreat for 11th Grade). 
 
No family is ever turned away for inability to pay. If you are in need of Tuition assistance, please fill out that form as well. 
 

Homeschool and Virtual Options

Although we would love for all students to be able to join us in person, we know that this may not be a viable option for some families. 
 
For Grades 1-6, we will be offering a home school study. Materials for students and parent teaching sheets will be distributed each month. The family will take home the materials, work on them and hand back in a reflection sheet based on the work done. The materials will be the same as the in class materials. 
 
For Grades 7-11, we will be offering a hybrid homeschool/virtual option. Some materials will be distributed each month for the students to work on their own. There will also be a once a month virtual check in session to see how those lessons are going.
