Family Faith Formation (formerly: Religious Education) at St. John the Evangelist


Due to COVID restrictions, this year’s Family Faith Formation (formerly: Religious Education) will be entirely online for at least the fall season and focused on providing you, the parents, with the resources and support needed to help your children grow in their faith. Our schedule this year (2020-21) will be: Sept 27 – Nov 9 for fall and Jan 10 – Feb 28 (not meeting Feb 14) for winter.

Our fall topic for parents will be: “How to Talk to Your Kids About the Mass” and winter will be “How to Talk to Your Kids About the Bible”. These topics and the dates listed above will be consistent whether we meet online or are allowed to meet in-person later.

Students preparing for sacraments this year (First Reconciliation/First Communion or Confirmation) will have a home based prep until we are able to meet in-person. In addition to the FFF registration, a separate registration form is required for them to be included in the appropriate preparation class.

There is no charge for Family Faith Formation this year, but a free will donation is always gratefully accepted to help with materials costs. If you desire to make a donation, please make your check out to: St. John the Evangelist, and put “Faith Formation” on the memo line.

We will be in touch soon with further details.

For questions, please contact: Todd Gale (todd@saintjohnjackson.org), Angel Koerkel (angel@sainjohnjackson.org), or Clare DeWitt (clare@saintjohnjackson.org). Thank you!
