Welcome to our 2018-2019 Faith Formation year! We are Gail Lahr and Sandy Mercurio. The two of us have been a teaching team together here at St. Mary’s since 2011. Gail has a family daycare business and Sandy is a retired GHAPS teacher!
Our goal throughout the year will be to help your child grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ. We will do this by bringing alive the gospel teachings, awareness of the importance of prayer to open their hearts to Jesus and stories of saints who have modeled their lives after Jesus.
We will be learning from the Pflaum Gospel Weeklies which focuses on the upcoming Sunday gospel reading. Your child will be bringing their Gospel Weekly home after each class. It would be wonderful for you to spend some time looking it over with them to review what we have learned. We will not always have time to get to all the important and interesting things in the Weekly and it could be a great family faith time for your child to share with you!
Our focus will always be on the Gospel reading and what good news Jesus is sharing with us to apply to our daily lives!
Look for an e-mail from us each week to let you know what we have learned and any important information to share with you about upcoming class events or any changes you need to be aware of.
We look forward to a great year and feel it is a privilege for us to have the opportunity to be part of your child’s growing faith. We remind them often how lucky they are to have parents who show them so much love by desiring them to have a strong faith foundation!
