Faith Formation

Due to COVID-19, we have moved our Life Nights to Family Faith Formation. Please see the information below:

ST.  OLIVER PLUNKETT FAMILY FAITH FORMATION 2020-2021

The Religious Education staff is excited to present a new opportunity to our families!

Because faith is best taught and lived out in the family, the Church calls parents to be the first and foremost educators of their children. With this directive from the Catholic Church, St. Oliver Plunkett is implementing a family catechesis program for our 1st through 12th grade students for the 2020-2021 school year.

Children are more likely to put into practice the faith they see lived out day-to day at home.  There is an understanding and duty to good formation which only happens in the family.

A family catechesis program helps families to embrace this time and use it to form their children well.  Our new Family Faith religious education program will be an opportunity to inspire families…especially parents, grandparents and guardians as evangelizers and to see the family and the home as the natural environment meant to foster one’s daily encounter of Jesus and discipleship.

Our Roots, Edge and Life Teen coordinators will assist our families in the following ways:

1. Presence—we will be there to lift up, encourage and help families
stay connected to God, to one another and to our faith community.

2. Lesson Plans—we will not overwhelm families with unrealistic
goals. We will provide a monthly family focused, thematic-activity
approach to faith formation. At the beginning of each month, you will
pick-up a FACE! Bag (Family and Church Education.) The FACE! Bag will include all instructions, supplies
and support for your family to have a weekly lesson with all ages represented.
