K - 5 Faith Formation during the COVID Pandemic

 Announcing Revised K-5 Programs
for 2020-2021


Due to safety concerns and the well-being of our children during the COVID-19 pandemic, Corpus Christi will not be holding in-person  K-5 faith formation sessions for this year.  For the 2020-2021 year we will be offering "at-home" programs for K-5 Faith Formation and Sacramental Preparation. Our theme and goal for this year is to support you in building and enriching your Domestic Church.

 

Father Rick and I are disappointed in not having the children on the property this year. We will miss them and you VERY much! Our prayers are for you to be safe and healthy and to come out on the other side of this pandemic with a grace-filled Domestic Church!


In peace,
Eileen Earle
