Catholic Family Formation and Evangelization (CaFFE)
The St. Norbert Parish Catholic Family Formation and Evangelization (CaFFE) strives to share with young parishioners and families of St. Norbert Parish the love of God our Father, our Lord Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. It is for children in K-8th Grades who attend a school where formation in the Catholic faith is not a regular part of the curriculum.
For CaFFE this year (2022-2023), we are offering two options:
1) CaFFE Standard using My Catholic Faith Delivered – This is a weekly, in -person flipped classroom platform that utilizes the Faith and Life series that we have been using in our classrooms for the past few years. Your child will be assigned to a grade level classroom that is led by one of our weekly CaFFE teachers. Your child will also be logging into the platform each week to complete lessons after Sunday morning lessons. The teacher will be monitoring your child’s progress each week. This option is for those of you who believe your child needs a bit more structure and like the weekly scheduled commitment. 7th Grade students will be receiving separate study materials for preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation. This is a flexible arrangement that will also use online when class is not in session. Please see calendar for the in person schedule.
2) Family program, using Family of Faith – This is our monthly family program. We will be utilizing the Family of Faith materials form Sophia Institute Press. This is a family-centered formation program that requires the leadership and participation of parents to be successful. Families will be working together on a monthly theme. Parents are REQUIRED to attend a once a month Theology meeting in-person where parents will be instructed on how to lead the at home lessons. Please see calendar for Family Program Weeks. This option takes seriously the Church’s official teaching that parents are the “first instructors in the faith” for their children. 7th Grade students will be receiving separate study materials for preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation.
