Family Clusters

The Family Cluster Model offers intergenerational learning for parents and children.  Please note: students preparing for Sacraments (First Reconciliation, First Communion, and Confirmation) must enroll in the traditional classroom instruction program.

FAMILY CLUSTER MODEL

  • Clusters, which are self-selected and formed, usually consist of 2 to 5 families.
  • One or both parents and child(ren) participate.
  • Clusters meet monthly in one another’s homes.
  • The families in the clusters determine monthly meeting times.
  • Adults share teaching, leadership and hospitality.
  • Cluster representatives attend planning sessions with the Religious Education team.
  • Participation in clusters involves a serious commitment to be present at all sessions.
  • Students preparing for the Sacraments must enroll in the traditional Religious Education Program.
