Grades 6-8 News
This year, FIAT Ventures will be coordinating and leading the learning sessions for Grades 6-8 . As a note, FIAT Ventures will also be coordinating and leading the Grade 9-Confirmation preparation program on Sunday evenings once a month.
FIAT ventures will work together with our own Catechists and other parent volunteers who would like to participate and serve as small group leaders with the youth in these grades.
Each learning session will last 60 minutes.
For Grades 7-8, on alternating weeks for each grade, a large group presentation will be presented. This will be preceded by/ followed by a “Ministry Moment,” a prayer activity, a game, praise & worship music, or video.
Large group presenters would be speakers from Fiat Ventures.
For Grade 6, children will begin in small groups with our Parish Catechists and would join the 7th grade large group for the “Ministry Moment” which would generally be the last (or first) 15 minutes of the session.
On these session weeks, Grade 8 would remain in small groups with our Parish Catechists for the entire session. Small Groups will focus on the content of the large group presentation.
