    You are the first and best teacher for your children. With the Family Faith Formation Program, Saint Mary Magdalen provides the support, guidance, & resources you need to integrate our Catholic faith into your family life.

    The Family Faith Formation program has four key elements:

    Core Program – Using Loyola Press’ Finding God series for students in grades K-8, parents and their children will grow in their knowledge and understanding of the Catholic faith at home.  Each grade level has its own online portal in Google Classroom.  The lessons use a combination of video, workbook, and online quiz to impart the teachings of our faith.  Lessons typically take about 30 minutes once a week to complete.  All previous grades must be completed satisfactorily in order to receive the Sacraments.

    Classroom Portal

    Classroom Sundays – Our faith grows best in community, and our Classroom Sundays give students the chance to build community, while reinforcing the lessons in the online program.  Students in grades 1-8 meet in classrooms in the school building from 10:20-11: 25 am twice a month for instruction and enrichment.

    Family Sundays – Just as families come together to celebrate birthdays and holidays, we come together as a family to celebrate our faith.  On Family Sundays, all in the St. Mary Magdalen community are invited to explore our faith in different, hands-on ways.

    Adult Formation – We can always grow deeper in our knowledge and love for God.  These sessions, open to all adults in the parish, run concurrently with the Classroom Sundays, enabling families to plan their Sunday mornings around worship and enrichment.
