Faith in Our Families


 

Faith in Our Families is a St. Mary Parish School initiative that began last year with the goal of connecting school families through faith. While there are many things we cannot do this year, we are pleased to be able to launch our second year of Kids Club!

 

Join Kid's Club!

Kid's Club is a fun tool parents can use to encourage weekend Mass attendance with their child(ren). It is modeled after the public library summer reading program. Kids record their Mass attendance on a simple form and turn it in for their choice of prizes (ex. faith inspired books, jewelry, music, etc).

 

Answers to Common Questions

- Only weekend Masses count, not school masses

- You do not have to attend at St. Mary; any church counts

- Virtual Mass counts for those unable to attend in person

- You do not have to attend consecutively; it may take you months to fill in a column

- Participation in Kid’s Club is optional

 

How to Begin

Forms will be coming home with students the first week of November. Extra copies are available in the kiosk by the school office and a link to print at home is available to the right. Simply start filling in the form when you attend Mass. Whenever a column fills up, students bring the form to school and hand give it to their teacher. 

 

Every Friday, Principal Joerres will visit classrooms to distribute prizes. At this time, he will give each student their form back to take home for continued use.

If you have a student attending school virtually that would like to participate, please contact us to make arrangements! 

 

End of the Year Raffle

 

At the end of the school year, we will have a Grand Prize Raffle. For each column a student completes in columns 3-8, they will receive 1 entry into the raffle. The more columns they complete, the more chances they have to win! Three winners will be chosen at random, each having an option to choose a prize. Only one prize winner per family. Examples of grand prizes include gift cards to local restaurants and attractions.

Mass'n'Hike a Success!  

 
A big THANK YOU to those who came out for our first event!  We gathered for mass and then headed out for a wonderful walk in the woods. The kids had fun looking for our special rocks and got a treat at the finish line, along with a prayer card depicting a beautiful nature scene. We look forward to more opportunities like this to connect as a family of faith!
