Sunday School for Ages 3-Kindergarten (2022-2023)
The Sunday School Program at HNOJ is designed to help you nurture the faith of your child. We provide your child with an experience of belonging to the Church. It is our intent to help the children begin to appreciate that our wonderful abilities are gifts from a loving God who made us in God's own image and likeness. Your child's growing sense of self is encouraged as they reflect on how much they have learned about God. We help to build upon and strengthen the foundation and readiness for your child's faith through lessons, prayer, song and play.

Sunday school FAQ
Holy Name of Jesus uses the Allelu curriculum in the Sunday School classrooms. Allelu is an early childhood program with innovations that make it easy to engage every child and build his or her faith. It is anchored with Child/Family Activity Sheets that are simple and easy to use at home during the week. Activity Sheets provide engaging and understandable prayers, activities, and saint stories, as well as brief, teachable insights for the entire family.
Each classes, students will pray together, sing/dance together, learn a bible story and participate in a craft that enforces that bible story.
Absolutely! If you’d like to stay for a few classes or if your child is having a little difficult time acclimating to Sunday School, you’re welcome to attend the first couple of sessions (or more if you’d like) with them until they are more comfortable with the classroom, their fellow students and their teachers.
We ask that there be no swapping of class times during the year if there is a conflict.
With students assigned to Class Mass Times and Classrooms, swapping class times makes it difficult for the Teachers with a certain number of students already assigned to their rooms.
If you are unable to make it to class, you are welcome to request the family packet to be given out the following week when you can make it to your scheduled class time. That way you can discuss the information learned the previous week at home as a fun activity together!
You sure do! Students who attended Sunday School this last Faith Formation Year have received their Sunday School Bags (if you have lost your bag or need a new one please, send Theresa Reichert an e-mail). Those starting Sunday School in the Pre-1 classes will receive their Sunday School Bags in the first couple of weeks of Sunday School. Those starting Sunday School for the first time in Pre-2 or Kindergarten, please send Annie LaPlante an e-mail request so your child can also receive their Sunday School Bag.
