WELCOME TO FOUNDATIONS!
FOUNDATIONS is the 6th grade Catholic faith formation program at St. Frances Cabrini. Coming off two exciting years of Confirmation Prep, this year, FOUNDATIONS will return to the study of Salvation History and the areas of our Catholic faith that engage and excite the youthful spirit of our students (i.e. Eucharistic Miracles, Incorruptible Saints, Mysteries of the Rosary, etc.). Bringing Scripture stories to life through skits, Large Group participation, and Small Group fellowship will connect the mind with the heart, as our newly confirmed students better understand their place in the story of God’s people, and their mission to live as witnesses to the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Supplemental Confirmation Prep will be offered to any new 6th Grade student entering into our C.F.F. program in 2019-2020.
FOUNDATIONS uses various resources and materials to generate lively discussions, presentations, and prayerful reflection. 6th graders will experience Adoration at least twice throughout the program year in their Small Groups, as well as experience various forms of prayer to help deepen their prayer life with Jesus. Family members of FOUNDATIONS students are invited to attend four FOUNDATIONS Family Prayer Nights throughout the program year. Family Prayer Nights offer opportunities for catechesis, fellowship, and worship, and are considered the highlight of the FOUNDATIONS year!
SCHEDULE & FORMAT:
FOUNDATIONS offers a format similar to EDGE, in order to assist 6th grade students in their transition, the following year, to the middle school program at St. Frances Cabrini. Students will receive large group teaching/discussion followed by small group reflection led by Adult Small Group Leaders & Peer Leaders. FOUNDATIONS Small Groups facilitate fellowship among peers and allow students the opportunity to grow deeper in their spiritual life by gaining confidence in talking about their Catholic faith.
FOUNDATIONS is held on Monday evenings from 6:30pm-8:00pm and closely follows the Children’s Faith Formation calendar for 1st-5th grades.
