Alive in Christ: 1st-5th Grade Faith Formation
Our 1st-5th grade faith formation classes take place on Wednesday evenings from 6pm-7pm at St. Pius X. These classes provide a comprehensive and authentic presentation of the essentials of the Catholic faith, centered on Christ. To register for classes click here.
We use the Alive in Christ curriculum created by Our Sunday Visitor. This curriculum has been found to be in conformity with the Catechism of the Catholic Church by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops's subcommittee on the Catechism.
The Church of St. Pius X Faith Formation Focus for Grades 1-5 are as follows:
Each grade level includes study at an age appropriate level on the life of Christ, scripture, liturgy and the Mass, sacraments, the Church, social teaching, and more. Each year builds on the next, so it is most helpful for children to continue to attend classes each year. Each grade level presents the material with a specific focus in mind:
First Grade - The person of Jesus Christ.
Third Grade - The Catholic Church
Fourth Grade - The Moral Life
Fifth Grade - The Seven Sacraments
