Children's Faith Formation

From Faith Formation Office COVID-19 Update


Let me tell you all about it:  Due to mass, events, and classes being canceled until April 1, 2020.  I would like you to take the time to pray with your family, practice your prayers, and go over what you have been learning this year so far.  I have also placed the handouts outside my office, marked by grade level for you to stop by and pick-up to work with your children.  

The church is open 9:30-3:30 Monday thru Sunday, with the church open for praying- as long as you keep to the social distance when praying.

Please give me a call if you have any questions, my office hours for now are:

M-F 9:30-12:30, you can also send me an email at: smcdonough@stjamesconw....

Be safe and blessings during this time.  Hope to see everyone once we are able to hold classes again.
