Home Study

For registration materials, schedules and handbooks, please visit our Schedules & Forms page.

A little-known Religious Education option at our parish is that of teaching your children in your own home. At St. Francis de Sales, we extend this option to parents of children in grades 3-8. Work at home is supplemented by bi-monthly gatherings for all families enrolled in the Home Study Program. During these sessions, we pray together and explore specific topics through presentations, conversations and activities.

St. Francis de Sales asks that families enrolled in the Home Study Program participate in the Sacramental celebrations organized by the Religious Education Department, such as our seasonal Reconciliation Services, program-wide celebrations of Mass, Living Stations of the Cross and May Crowning. Although we realize attendance at all of these celebrations of our Lord may not be possible, we ask that families join us in as many as possible.
