Jesus said, “Let the children come to me” Matthew 19:14.
Classes for children in grades PK-5 are offered Wednesdays from 6:30-7:45pm in the Parish Center Mid-September-May. The curriculum is based on the four pillars of the Faith: Creed, Morals, Sacraments, and Prayer, in alignment with the learning expectations approved by the Archdiocese of Seattle. Catechists help children grow in their faith through approved textbooks, engaging activities, and prayer.
Grade level focuses are as follows:
K-Creation, Jesus, and God’s Family
1-Creation, Jesus, and the Church
2-Reconciliation, Eucharist, Mass
3-The Catholic Church
Each class balances information and activities appropriate for each age level to help our parish children learn as much as they can about our Catholic faith.
Sunday preschool classes for children ages 3-5 are also offered weekly during the 10:30 AM Mass. Volunteer teachers engage the children with stories from the Bible and crafts, games and activities to make learning fun.
