General Information Regarding the Elementary Program:

We use a new curriculum offered by Our Sunday Visitor known as Alive in Christ. 
Click HERE to learn more about this curriculum. First through Fifth graders will use this curriculum. Each Faith Formation student will be given a book to use throughout the year. Our Catechists (Teachers) are dedicated volunteers who will give your children faithful presentation of the Church's teaching. We will help stimulate your child's religious imagination so they can learn to think more critically and become better prepared to proclaim and live their faith at home, at school and at play. It is our hope that children who come and participate on Wednesdays will find a community of caring believers here at Holy Name of Jesus, who will help them supplement the teachings they receive from their parents - the primary educators of the Faith Formation.
