A community praying, growing, serving & welcoming in Jesus Christ

Registration

Welcome to St. Sylvester Family Faith Formation 2021-2022 

REGISTRATION IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED.  PLEASE EMAIL [email protected] TO REGISTER

We hope you are all well and enjoying the summer! We are looking forward to the coming year in Family Faith Formation and want to share with you what is new! We have been working on developing a program that will be more family oriented, balancing home life and parish life, empowering parents to be witnesses of the faith and encouraging and providing opportunities for families to experience God's loving presence in all they do and in all the places they are.  

This is what the program will consist of for the 2021-2022 year, which will begin November 2021 and end April 2022:

The first week of each month:  We will have a Virtual Family Gathering that will be live streamed from the church that will consist of music, scripture readings, prayer, and a teaching/focus of the month.  It will be posted on the website so that your family can watch it together at a convenient time.  There will also be a Google form on our website for your family to go to that will have questions for your child and yourself to answer regarding the Virtual Family Gathering Presentation, and a place to request prayers for your family that will be used at the following Virtual Family Gathering.    

The second week of the month:  Your family will be instructed to do an activity/project together at home that will reenforce the teaching for that month.  The activity is designed to be fun and bring families together as they learn more about God's love for us and how we can share that love with others beginning with our own family.  Materials will be included in your child's folder. Your child will have the opportunity to “show and tell” what activity/project you did as a family with their class the third week of the month during their Zoom class.

The third week of the month:  Catechists will lead your child's class by the Level they are registered in on the Zoom platform and invite your child to share their family activity/project with the class and then go over materials and lessons from your child's workbook according to the Faith Formation curriculum calendar. 

The fourth week of the month:  Catechists will lead your child's class by the Level they are registered in on the Zoom platform and go over materials and lessons from your child's workbook according to the Faith Formation curriculum calendar. 

Please note that because of the uncertainty of Covid 19 virus and the Delta variant, and its potential proliferation, for the safety of all, we are going to exercise caution and not hold classes here at the parish at this time.  We will reevaluate on an ongoing basis and keep you informed if at any time we feel it is safe to hold classes here at the parish.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.  

All Are Welcome!! Did you know that we have an Individualized Family Faith Formation Program for children with special needs?  If your child has special needs, and has been diagnosed with:
Autism, ADD or ADHD, Reading Disability, Cognitive Speech Delay, ODD or Other Behavioral Concerns, Sensory Processing Disorder, Other Health Impairment ...please know that there is a place for your child in the St. Sylvester Family Faith Formation and Sacramental Program.  We have been blessed with volunteers who are educated and experienced in working with children with special needs and their families.  Please call the Family Faith Formation Office at 631-475-4506 Ext. 118 or email mailto:[email protected] so that we can help in placing your child in the class that will be most beneficial for them.
 
Please register your child as soon as possible.  Once you have registered your child, you will be able to pick up their folder at the Parish Center on the following days and times:
Tuesday, October 19, 2021 from 3:00 P.M. to 6:00 P.M.
Wednesday, October 20, 2021 from 5:00 P.M. to 7:00 P.M.
Thursday, October 21, 2021 from 3:00 P.M. to 6:00 P.M.

Once again, thank you for your ongoing patience and cooperation.   
We look forward to serving your family and thank you for your patience.  Stay healthy, happy, holy, and hope-filled…for with Jesus all things are possible. Mark 10: 27
