Foundations of Faith

Foundations of Faith is our formation program here at Saint Barbara.   It is an intergenerational model that includes learning for the entire family.

While participation is open to all parishioners, it is expected that all families with children from Pre-K to Grade 5 will participate.

Families are required to attend TWO sessions each month:

1st Session of the month:
Time: 5:45-8:00pm
Families will stay together for learning and have a catered dinner together in the Social Hall.
Please note time change from last year.

2nd Session of the month
Time: 6:30-8:00pm   
Grade level based, with the adult session meeting in the Social Hall and the children gathering in the downstairs meeting area. Will Smith will present to the adults, while our catechists will lead the children. Please note there is no dinner at this session.

If you are unable to attend on Tuesdays or Wednesdays, your family is required to complete a home based option if your children are in Pre K—5th grade. This option is done at home with the purchase of a textbook for each child.  A syllabus is given to follow to complete the lessons over the year.  The cost is $35 per book.

Students in 6th – 12th Grade

If any middle or high school youth ministry member is interested in being a catechist aide in the sessions, or helping with the babysitting, they are welcome to be a part of Foundations of Faith. Contact Caitlin Novacek with any questions about helping with Foundations of Faith.

Middle and high school formation will be done through our youth ministry program.   You can read more about that program here.
