Messages from the Faith Formation Office
Happy New Year! Here's some updates to kick off the year!
Welcome to the 2nd semester of children's Faith Formation at St James Church! Praying you all had a blessed and restful Christmas and New Year's holiday!
Thank you for all the hard working catechists, parents and children adjusting to our distant learning platform this year. It has been a challenging year of spiritual learning and growing in our faith, and yet embraced by all.
Please continue to do exceptional work by following the class syllabus weekly and logging onto FORMED.org for additional video's, activities and workshops for all to enjoy. This is a new year to embrace our faith fully and never lose hope, Together we will get through this pandemic.
Appreciate your patience, flexibility with schedule changes and understanding as we navigate the next phase of the pandemic. God bless and keep you and your families safe.
We are excited to announce a learning tool called FORMED that will be used by some of our teachers, and more importantly by students and parents in the home. FORMED.org is a premier on-line platform filled with over 4,000 Catholic studies, movies, cartoons, audio dramas, ebooks, and talks – and it’s free for every parishioner.
