Information on Preschool Program
Little Children Preschool Program operates during Sunday 10:30 AM Mass September through May in Longinus Hall for approximately 30 minutes. Our program is for children ages 3-5 years of age and need to be toilet trained. Parents may drop their child off with preschool staff or remain with their child. Our program uses the curriculum Catholic ABC's which is a fun engaging curriculum designed to build a strong beginning foundation of faith and the knowledge that God loves us.
Information on CCD program
St. John's CCD program uses the Family Catechist model and a program called, A Family of Faith by the Sophia Institute. The church has long stated that parents are the first teachers of their children. A Family Catechesis model involves parish volunteers called Leaders that instruct parents, so that in turn parents teach their children the faith in the home. We have two meetings each month, one parent meeting and one community meeting September through May. Parent meetings consist of parents receiving instruction on the monthly lessons. At Community Meetings the Leader will review key concepts and the whole family will have fun doing activities, games, trivia and special projects to reinforce the lessons learned at home. See the events calendar for the location and times of this program.
