Elementary Faith Formation

Elementary Faith Formation
Kindergarten through 5th Grades

Welcome to St. Jude Catholic Parish Faith Formation.  Our mission is to proclaim the message of Jesus by participating in communal efforts to educate children, teens, adults, and families in the Catholic Faith by developing a community and leading people to worship and serve God and others.  At St. Jude we strive to cultivate wisdom and virtue in each child, focusing on the appreciation of beauty, goodness, and truth.  We teach our students to have great respect for God and neighbor.  We encourage critical thinking and active participation, guiding our students to deepen their knowledge and love of God.  We foster their understanding of Scriptures and the teachings of the Catholic Church.
  2020-2021 Faith Formation  

This year we are moving to the Family Catechesis Format –
a Home-based Online Distant Learning Process 

Due to Covid-19, Elementary Faith Formation Classes are being taught at home through Google Classroom as part of the Family Catechesis.  Family Catechesis is when the whole family is catechized together. Parents pass on the Catholic Faith to their children through weekly home lessons and together the entire family grows in holiness and deepens their Catholic faith. This model enables parents to be the primary educators in faith formation with support from the parish community. We are currently using the Faith and Life Series and all the lessons are uploaded online.   

We pray that we will be able to resume our regular in-person classes for the 2021-2022 school year.  Please sign up to volunteer as catechists or classroom aides and be a part of something great and rewarding as we form future saints.     

Online Faith Formation Registration will be available VERY SOON.  Please check our website for updates and registration information regularly.  

We'd love you to join us fostering the future of our Church in faith formation! Please consider joining our Catechetical Ministry Team. For more information regarding this opportunity contact:
