The primary model for Religious Education & Youth Faith Formation at St. Isaac Jogues is that of age appropriate group learning sessions held on our campus.
- Children in grades 1 to 6 meet on Wednesdays at either 4 pm to 5:15 pm or 6 pm to 7:15 pm in the school.
- Children in grade 7 meet on Wednesdays at 6 pm to 7:15 pm in the parish center.
- Children in grade 8 meet on Sundays at 4:30 pm to 5:45 pm for the first semester and are invited to participate in the Youth Ministry activities during the second semester
The year offers family Masses, confessions for the children during both Advent and Lent and special Advent & Lent projects.
If a family cannot participate in the primary program, then they request permission to educate and form their children in the faith through the At Home program. Participants in this program are encouraged to join in the special grade level events scheduled on campus throughout the year. At Home families are guided to follow a calendar that parallels the on campus program, completing a chapter from the text each week, along with submitting chapter reviews in a timely manner. Even though the at home learning is done within individual families, it is very important that families stay on schedule, so the child experiences systematic and consistent learning; participation in the on campus grade level special events is also important, so that the child and his/her family can recognize that they are a vital part of their parish community, their church family.
