In an effort to continue to meet the needs of the St. Sebastian community, we have developed a new approach to adult, child and adolescent religious education and engagement. This proposed scenario was prepared with the input of staff, catechists, parents, students and parishioners. It involves providing age-specific classes on two Sundays a month, with whole-community events several times a year. We strive to balance the strength, compassion and spiritual nourishment of our faith community with more direct instruction for children and more engagement for adults when our Faith Formation classes meet twice monthly from 9:00 to 10:30 a.m.
We’ll also have three Intergenerational/Family Gatherings during the year with potluck meals, and we’ll encourage Adult Formation Faith discussions in the Church Hall using the “Come to the Table” series.
Please fill out all forms and return them as soon as possible. Forms and ¼ of the total payment must be submitted by August 25th in order to avoid a late fee, so your prompt response is appreciated. If you have a child celebrating a sacrament (First Reconciliation, First Communion or Confirmation) contact Ed, and a separate registration form will be mailed to you.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us. We want to make this transition as smooth as possible, so we value your input. We look forward to gathering in the Church Hall at 9 am on September 15 to introduce everyone to the new year.
