St. Colette no longer offers an in-person faith formation program during the traditional school year. If you are looking for in-person classes and cannot participate in our SCAP program, you are eligible to enroll in faith formation classes at one of our Family of Parishes partners - Our Lady of Victory, St. Edith, and St. Kenneth. Click HERE for more info.
We currently offer two faith formation options for children in K-8th grade:
** SCAP - Summer Catechetical Alternative Program
This is an in-person, two-week program that happens in June and July and has both an AM (9am-12:30pm) and a PM (5:30-9:00pm) session. Click HERE for more info.
** Home Study Program
This is a parent-led study that students do at home with the help of a curriculum book and worksheet packet. 8th grade students also have short accompanying videos. This program can be done over the summer or during the traditional school year. Click HERE for more info.
** To register for the current year, your family account from the past year needs to be paid in full. Registrations will not be accepted with past due balances.
** Those participating in the Home Study Program are required to return their completed book and worksheet packet, and do an online assessment, in order to receive a certificate of completion. Books and worksheets ARE checked for completion - so parents should check their students work and ask them to revisit the lessons if necessary.
** In general, students are expected to be enrolled in St. Colette Faith Formation for two years before they can complete a sacrament here. If your family is new to the parish and you have a child in need of a sacrament, we will need to contact your former parish to get any faith formation records on file for your family.
