Disciples (Grades K-5th)

Our Faith Formation Program for children

Classes are exclusively online

The complete 2020-2021 schedule is at the bottom of this page

Since there are so few classes remaining this year, registration is closed.

Please join us for the 2021-2022 school year by registering in August.

Religious Education is much more than passing on facts about the Catholic Church ~ it is about formation in faith and action as disciples.
The life of every Catholic, from childhood to adulthood, is about being formed in the image of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior as He has been revealed through His Church and the sacraments. This formation prepares us to do what Jesus told his diciples to do: "Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, ... teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you." (Matthew 28:19-20) This is the Great Commission. We are partners with Christ.

This has been a difficult year for everyone. When we cannot see our families and friends; when we cannot go to church, school, or work; when we cannot even enjoy dinner and a movie – it is tough to be a believer. Being steadfast in our faith is especially difficult during painful times, yet that is exactly when we need our faith in Jesus Christ even more! It is why we continue to offer Disciples for kindergarteners through fifth graders.

 For the 2020-2021 academic year, we are meeting exclusively online. Each registered child will have access to an electronic version of his/her textbook along with lesson plans delivered by our catechists through The flipgrid videos become available every Monday (the complete schedule is below), so you and your child can watch them at your convenience. Flipgrid also allows your family the opportunity to respond via video to the lesson. From time-to-time, additional materials will become available for more interaction and less of a “remote” feeling.

Of course, as we are able to safely return to a more communal experience of life over the next few months, the Office of Faith Formation will be in touch with any changes to our schedule.

Registration is available online by clicking here. There are additional activities for those children preparing to receive a Sacrament: Please click here for that information. Our programs are centered on Christ and on helping your family become fully active participants in the life of the parish.

The schedule for 2020-2021 is below. Cost is $100 per student with a $200 maximum per family. Scholarships are available - please contact Brian at or 623.975.5606.

For all the chidren of the parish and their friends, we also offer Children's Liturgy of the WordChildren's Liturgy of the Word is a way for school-aged children to access the Sunday readings. Using the Lectionary for Masses with Children, we present reflections and prayers geared towards kindergartners through fifth graders. Since dismissal is not taking place, families can watch these before or after attending Mass in person or through live stream.

Welcome to our formation program and may our Lord bless and enrich each family to become true disciples within the community of St. Clare of Assisi Catholic Church.
