Elementary Program

Grades 1 - 5

The Elementary Faith Formation Program at St. Mary’s takes place on Wednesday afternoons from 5:00 to 6:00 PM and runs from late September through April. The core curriculum is Finding God. Each grade level will also have a set of prayers that they will master by the end of the year. These prayer expectations are set forth by the Diocese of St. Cloud and are consistent with what is expected of the St. Mary’s Elementary School children.

Sacramental Preparation/Formation

Open to members of Church of St. Mary who are entering 2nd grade.
