 Little Saints Edge Registration Form

 

September 1, 2020

Greetings Parents –

 

I pray that you and your family are well and staying safe, during these unprecedented times that we are experiencing. We need to keep that hope alive and to know that we will get through this time, together. I would like to share about our Wednesday faith formation programs - Little Saints/EDGE/Sacramental Preparation for this current time.

 

Being that we are not able to gather in person on Wednesday evenings for Little Saints/EDGE/Sacramental Preparation, these programs will be carried out very differently, at least for the 1st Semester. You, as the main teachers of the faith for your children, we are depending on you, as parents, to work with your child/ren at home on a weekly basis. Please know that ALL families of St. Gabriel Parish are invited to participate in these faith formation programs, whether your child goes to St. Gabriel School or another school. It is very important that if your child does not attend St. Gabriel School, they do register and participate in Little Saints/EDGE.

 

Every week, (beginning Sept 23rd), Fr. Joe Sharbel &/or Fr. Samuel Miloscia will do a Facebook Live (St. Gabriel Catholic Church page) presentation on a certain topic of the Catholic Faith.  This presentation will be geared toward you as parents.  Each week, parents that have registered children in Little Saints (Kindergarten through 5th grade) will receive an email with information, resources, &/or lessons you complete with your child/ren to reinforce/teach on the weekly topic. Those registered students in EDGE (6, 7, 8 grade) will meet with Fr. Samuel via Zoom, with the various weekly topics.  (The Facebook Live presentation is filmed by Wednesday late afternoon. The K-5 weekly email and EDGE Zoom invite will be sent no later than Wednesday afternoons.)

 

In order to participate in Little Saints/EDGE/Sacramental Prep you must complete the Little Saints Edge Registration Form.   Please complete & submit. (Register EACH child SEPERATELY.) 

If you have a child who is in 2nd grade or in older grade that needs to receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Communion they must be registered with Little Saints. More information regarding this preparation has been sent in a separate email. (Please contact me if you did not receive the Sacrament Prep email.)

 

This is a very different time in our daily living; many of our usual events/tasks have to be carried out so differently. As I mentioned at the beginning of this note, we will get through this together and we have to keep the hope alive. Thank you, for your patience, understanding, and support during this time as we begin our faith formation programs.

 

Feel free to contact me with any questions or need of further information. I am looking forward to this new and temporary adventure with Little Saints/EDGE/Sacramental Preparation and being in partnership with you, as parents, with the faith formation of your children.

May you and your families continue to stay well and safe.

 

Blessings,

Angela P. Garcia
