UPDATE ON OUR PROGRAM
We are experiencing changes in all areas of our daily lives due to this pandemic. Here at St. Thomas à Becket, we will continue to follow a FAMILY-BASED approach integrating our four main components, but it will look and be implemented in a different way. The safety and well-being of everyone concerned is our priority.
The 4 main components are:
- Mass: Live-streamed mass at St. Thomas a Becket can be watched at 11:00 am on Sunday through the parish website. Please stay connected with mass at your parish. It is a source of strength and comfort during this time.
Children’s Gatherings: We are so excited to launch our new virtual platform on SeeSaw to our Faith First families. This replaces the gathering component of our program. Units will be sent via email by grade level approximately once a month for this year. Our hope is that adults accompany the child as part of their faith development on this journey. Each unit contains video clips, songs, activities and craft suggestions to enhance learning.
**Please note: each Faith First child needs their own code to access the units.**
- Work Book: Each child should have received a book or duo-tang as usual at the end of September according to their level.
- Parent/Family component: Updated resources on this page and others sent via email. Please be sure to add us to your contact list.
Please refer to the Program Info page for more info.

Weekly reflections are meant to help children participate in the mass as well as begin the practice of including Jesus in their everyday lives. Stay tuned for some creative ideas!<
*As per our Catholic obligation, we are asked to attend mass every week. In order to complete this component of the program we ask families to attend at least twice a month.
