I hope you are all doing well.
This year I am very glad to say that Little Saints/EDGE/Sacramental Preparation will be in person once again. These programs in large part will be conducted the way they were conducted before the pandemic.
Even though we will be in person once again I would like to encourage you all to still work with your children at home on a weekly basis as you are the first and main teachers of the faith for your children. 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.
Little Saints/EDGE will take place every Wednesday evening beginning on September 15th. That first meeting on September 15th will be an orientation meeting for both programs; it will start at 6:15 pm. This orientation will be for both parents and students, at least one parent will need to attend.
In regards to masking, we will follow whatever the CDC and the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph recommends at the time.
In order to participate in Little Saints/EDGE you must complete the appropriate Registration Form: Little Saints Registration Form EDGE Registration Form
If you have multiple children please register EACH child SEPERATELY. Completed Registration Forms must be submitted no later than September 9th.
If you have a child who is in 2nd grade or in an older grade that needs to receive the Sacraments of Reconcilliation and 1st Communion they must be registered with Little Saints. Please note that you must fill out the Sacramental Preparation form as well. For more information regarding this preparation please contact me.
I look forward to this year as we return to normalcy and partnering with you, as parents in the faith formation of your children.
