Program Overview

Word of Life, by Augustine Institute is the JUNIOR DISCIPLES Faith Formation offering for grades 1 through 5. We open our sessions with prayer, read scripture together, discuss, play games, review what we learned using question and answer techniques to check for understanding, and close with prayer.

Our Word of Life Reconciliation and Communion sacramental prep program for 2nd grade and up includes weekly sessions along with some additional gatherings. Last year we prepared over 100 disciples to receive the sacraments!

On site sessions* for grades 1 through 5 meet weekly on Monday’s from 5:00 to 6:15 p.m. or 6:45 to 8:00 p.m., and Tuesdays from 5:00 to 6:15 p.m., a virtual option is also available.

*Session offerings are based upon disciple enrollment and volunteer involvement and are subject to change without notice.
