SPARK: A 4th and 5th Grade Faith Club

SPARK is a club for 4th & 5th grader students to deepen their faith and grow in friendship.

Students will continue catechesis while discussing further how the topics apply to their lives. This is a brand new ministry that kids can help create as we go along.


Pope Francis to Youth

“Enthusiasm is contagious. But do you know where this word comes from: enthusiasm? It comes from Greek and it means “to have something of God inside or “to be inside God. Enthusiasm, when it is healthy, demonstrates this: that one has something of God inside and expresses him joyously. Be open, with this enthusiasm, to hope and to yearn for fullness, yearn to give meaning to your future, to your whole life, to imagine the appropriate journey for each of you and to choose the path that brings you peace and human fulfillment.

Pope Francis, Address, July 2014

The Lord Calls the Young

“Ah, Lord God!” I said, “I do not know how to speak. I am too young!” But the Lord answered me, "Do not say, 'I am too young.' To whomever I send you, you shall go; whatever I command you, you shall speak. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you to deliver you."

–Jeremiah 1:6-8
