About Spark

Spark is blended learning for families with children who have missed formal religious formation since the first grade.  In Spark, families are guided through weekly home study lessons with short, pre-recorded videos from our faith consultant, Joan Stoltz.  In addition, we host monthly in-person family gatherings at St. Max.  Both parent and child will be required to come to these monthly gatherings. 

Save the Dates:  In person gatherings for 2022-2023 are already planned and will be held on Sundays (4:30-5:45 pm) OR Mondays (6:00-7:15 pm): Kick off is Sep. 18/19.  The 2022-2023 monthly gathering dates are:  Sept. 18/19, Oct. 9/10, Nov. 6/7, Dec. 4/5, Jan. 29/30, Feb. 26/27, Mar. 26/27, Apr. 23/24.  Choose your favorite night on the registration form and you will attend that session for the entire year. 

 Choose Spark if:

  • Your child (grade 2 and up ) attends public school and missed formation last year.
