Dear Families,


Happy Summer! With the school year now wrapped up, I really hope each family can find some time to relax just a bit and enjoy some of the pleasures that summertime can bring.

It is also the time of year to begin planning for next year’s Faith Formation classes. Download the registration form for all students entering 7th or 8th grade in the fall. Please take a minute to fill out the form and return it with your registration payment by August 11th. 

Our middle school classes meet every other week. The 7th grade classes meet on Wednesday nights from 6:30 – 8:00, and 8th grade classes meet on Tuesday nights from 6:30 – 8:00. Classes are held at the church in Fr. Crawford Hall. The first class will begin in late September and they will run until April. I ask you to please keep this schedule in mind when planning your child’s activities. A class schedule will be mailed in early September to all those who register.

Please make sure you give an accurate email address (or two), on the registration form. I will be communicating via email throughout the year.  If anyone has questions I can be reached at seaver711@aol.com

If anyone is interested in lending a hand and serving as a catechist, your help would be much appreciated.  I am very aware of the busy schedules we all have, therefore, the catechists are not expected to plan the lessons, but instead offer the assistance to lead a small group discussion and/or assist in any way to make the classes run smoothly. If this is something you would be interested in doing please let me know in the next month or so, in order to plan accordingly. 

I thoroughly enjoy leading the 7th and 8th grade Faith Formation Program. I am amazed by the energy and passion that our youth have as well as their desire to lead faith-filled lives and to make a positive difference in this world.  As we all know, the first example our children have is the example we set for them in our own homes.  I look forward to partnering with all of you as we give our best efforts to guide our children towards spiritual growth and a deeper knowledge of their Catholic Faith.  

Peace to All,

Maggie Seaver
