Our Faith Formation programming for elementary students uses a workshop model to bring children into conversation with our beloved and sacred stories. Imagination and wonder are at the core of our classroom time. Children will use arts and crafts, songs and stories, cooking and games to put into motion what they learn during our large group time. Classes are taught by a teacher and volunteer and are offered in two age groups:
DK Explorers: Kindergarten, Grades 1 and 2
DK Adventurers: Grades 3, 4, and 5
