 Home Study Model Calendar


Home Study Model – parents are the primary teachers of their children in handing on our faith. In this option you directly form your children in the language and practices of the Catholic faith and associated way of life. This option of religious formation is open to grades 1-8.  Preparation for First Reconciliation and First Holy Eucharist is accomplished at the parish with special formation sessions involving both parent and child (along with the other formation options). During the course of the year, our primary resource for Grades 1-8 is the Our Sunday Visitor “Call to Faith” religious formation books.

Home Study is a contract-based partnership between the parent and the parish. The parish provides the resources necessary to conduct the program and is available to answer any questions. Parents are asked to attend a parent meeting on September 11 at 11:45am in the chapel.  In return you agree to make your way through the formation material, bring in the books to be checked for progress four times during the year.

Book checks Schedule: To ensure all our Home-Study children are progressing in their formation and receive credit for their efforts, we ask you to turn in their books on October 23, January 8, February 26 and April 23, where they will be reviewed for progress made and returned to the Home Study table for pick-up the following weekend.
