Due to a decline in enrollment at all the parishes, the parishes decided it was time that we worked together for the better of all. It just makes sense to pull our resources and volunteers together and use them in a more effective way.
The New Tri-Parish Program is outlined below:
High School: This program will stay almost the same, except it will not be called LifeTeen. It will now be called Family Life Night and parents are welcome to join their teens.
Grades K-8: There will be two options to choose from: Regular Drop-off program or Family Life Program.
The regular drop-off program will be held at St. Mary on Sunday mornings from 9:15-10:15am in the grade school. This program will run as it has in the past, you will drop off your children for class and pick them up when they are done. There are four times when parents are requested to attend with their children.
Family Life Night will be held the first and third Sunday of the month from 5-7pm at St Charles. The entire family is invited to attend but at least one adult must accompany the children for the evening. As part of the program we offer a 4:00pm Mass that will be family orientated and families are encouraged to attend.
Family Life Night begins as we gather for a family dinner at 5:00pm in Andre Hall. The first few dinners will be provided but then we will be asking for family’s to help out with donations of food items, set up and clean up. After dinner, around 5:30pm, everyone will attend and hour-long class. The students will go to their appropriate classes and the adults will also have a session. We are still working on the adult portion of the night and we encourage you to share your ideas with us. We are planning on a series of speakers that we hope you will enjoy. The evening ends with a family activity and blessing all centered on a theme. This year’s theme is “Tell Me a Story”. There will be different crafts, skits, games and other activities at this time. We will also use this time to demonstrate things life prayers and traditions that you can bring home to your own family time.
