UPLIFT Families Wednesday Program
Feb 2 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm

“Uniting People Living in Faith and Truth” (UPLIFT) Families is the religious education program serving the parents and children (K5-8th grade) of the Family of Four Parishes. UPLIFT Families is a program for children and adults, designed to develop strong Catholic families in which children learn the joys of following Jesus Christ and the truths of our Faith through the witness of Christian life in their families.

Families will attend classes twice a month on either Wednesday evenings (6:30-7:30 pm) or Sunday mornings (10:30-11:30 am). To kick off the year, we’ll be having a parent meeting on September 15 or September 19.

Because the safety of our families is our first priority, we will be meeting online for the first half of the year until December and will reassess the possibility of meeting in person in January. The online meetings will consist of a presentation of the lesson, small group discussion and activities, along with family fun and games.

To register for UPLIFT Families go to https://forms.office.com/r/0A64tuN2zd and complete one registration form for your family.
