Region 2 Faith Formation--Grades K-5 FUSED 4 Youth Ministry—Grades 6-12

(Comprised of Christ the King, Our Lady Queen of Peace, St. Gertude and St. James the Greater Parishes)


 Dear Parent/Guardian:


We are pleased to announce that in addition to offering a regional Youth Ministry program we now offer a regional faith formation program for grades K-5 as well. The region is comprised of the parishes of Christ the King, Our Lady Queen of Peace, St. Gertrude's and St. James the Greater. Input from parents, teachers and priests aided in the discernment of this new direction.

During the 2018-2019 school year, children in grades K-5th will meet twice a month on Sunday from 6:00-7:30 PM at St. James Parish Center (the former St. James school). LIFETEEN (9th-12th grades) and EDGE (6th-8th grades) programs will meet weekly from 6:00-7:30 PM. Occasionally, there will be Faith Formation events on an off Sunday or other day of the week.

Because the sessions for grades K-12 will be held under one roof on Sunday night, our hope is that it will make things easier on busy parents. We anticipate that this time slot will present the least amount of conflicts with other activities.

We have included a Registration form, Parent/Guardian Consent/Release form and a Photographic Release letter for you to complete. Please turn the forms/photographic release letter along with your fee by Sunday, August 26th. It is essential that you abide by the deadline. Fees are only for children in grades K-5. On August 26th, please join us for the Youth Mass at St. James at 5:00 PM with an After Mass Party (AMP) to follow. At the AMP we will be giving tours of the St. James school building, taking registrations and answering any questions that you may have. The AMP is a potluck dinner.

Contact persons: Regional Director of Faith Formation: Mrs. Katie Tylinski, Regional Assistant to the Director of Faith Formation: Mr. James Peterman, Regional Assistant to the Director of Faith Formation: Mrs. Beth Kendle.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Thank you for allowing us to work with you as a partner in the faith formation of your child. We are very excited for the youth and families of this area to unite to grow in our Catholic faith together!

God's blessings,





Katie Tylinski, Regional Director of Faith Formation
