Family of Faith

 

VBS 2024 – Registration is closed. Please contact Sadie Peterson at sadie.peterson@archbalt.org if you intended to register for VBS but missed the deadline. She can evaluate the groups to see if we have enough space for you. Thank you for your understanding. 
We are striving to have online registration this year. It will help us to keep accurate records, have different forms of payment and organize our classes to facilitate smoother communication with our Religious Education Families. Please click on the link below to begin registration.
Thank you for registering your children for next year. Paying with a credit card or electronic payment is self-explanatory, but if you prefer to pay with cash, check, pay part, pay later or want to use the Lynn and Theresa fund, please fill out the registration online and submit. You can X out of the payment page and we will be notified of a pending registration. We will then contact you and arrange for the payment or discount.

What does our program look like?

 

What is Family of Faith?

  •  a family catechesis (pronounced kat-eh-kee-sis) program at St. Bartholomew Catholic Church.
  • an alternative to traditional CCD where the parents meet monthly to learn more about and explore their faith.
  • where parents transmit the faith to their children at home with the resources provided.
  • an emphasis on building community within the church through community gatherings outside of the liturgy.
