Our Christian Formation program is built based on the St. Alphonsus Mission Statement and the Four Pillars of the Catholic Faith...
According to the St. Alphonsus Parish Mission Statement, we strive to provide opportunities for lifelong Christian education, emphasizing justice-filled service based on Scriptures and our lived tradition.
Four Pillars of the Catholic Faith:
- The profession of Faith - what Catholics believe
- The celebration of the Christian Mystery - how Catholics worship
- Life in Christ - how Catholics live
- Christian prayer - how Catholics pray
We designed our program using the following resources and models:
The spiral curriculum of the Blest Are We series in Kindergarten through Eighth grade:
First Reconciliation*: RCL Benziger Reconciliation
First Eucharist*: RCL Benziger First Communion
Ninth Grade: Pflaum Gospel Readings – Visions Program
Tenth Grade: Matthew Kelly series – Decision Point
Eleventh grade*: Ascension Press – Chosen
*Retreats are incorporated within the Sacrament programs
