Virtual Religious Education

During this time of the COVID-19 Pandemic we have decided to go Virtual, based on parent survey results as well as the FCPS guidelines.  We want to make sure that your needs are met and that you feel safe and comfortable. At any time, please feel free to contact Jean, the Director of Faith Formation, at the contact information below.  Thank you!!

Registrations 2020-2021

Welcome Back Religious Education families!  We have missed you!!  This year (at least through December) we will be doing faith formation virtually. We have some great tools and resources for you and are very excited to help you learn to use them.  Unfortunately, we can only offer Grades 1-8 virtually. You have two options on the Registration:

Option 1 – Homeschool:  A homeschool curriculum using “My Catholic Faith Delivered”.  With some assistance from parents, a child will progress through the lessons using an online platform.  The Director of Faith Formation will monitor your child’s progress.

Option 2 for Grades 1-6 – Catechist-led:  A Catechist will provide weekly lessons using Our Sunday Visitor’s “Alive in Christ” curriculum.  A catechist will monitor your child and report participation to the Director of Faith Formation.

Option 2 for Grades 7-8 – Catechist-led:  A Catechist will provide weekly lessons using Ascension Press’ “Chosen”. The Catechist will monitor the child’s progress and report participation to the Director of Faith Formation.

We are also considering offering a multi age family program using “Our Sunday Visitor” Alive in Christ curriculum with one weekly lesson for all children in your family.  The Catechist will send weekly notifications that you as parents would follow with your children.  If you are interested, please contact Jean after you register for Option 2 to discuss this further.  Availability will depend on the interest level.

Online Religious Education registration for 2020 – 2021 is active.  Please go here to register online through Faith Direct.  Please go here for RE Calendar. 

Please note that any synchronous learning for Grades 1-5 is planned for Sunday morning.  Grades 6-8 will have a Monday option and we will be contacting you about that in September.  

Contact Jean Lupinacci with any questions or concerns:  jlupinacci@stmark.org or 703-938-1948 x1.
