“Classes”, which primarily focused on head knowledge, are being replaced by the online learning formats we started using in 2020.
The Come and See Gatherings will offer a variety of enrichment activities, such as bible stories, dramatizations, service projects, ice-breaker team building games, etc. We hope these to be similar to what the Pathfinders experience was in the fall of 2019.
We will expect one adult in each family to assist in a “rotating helper” capacity.
The “Come and See Gatherings” that we will start offering in the fall of 2021 will be offered periodically, with families signing up for one or more sessions per season. This sign up will happen online (through Sign Up Genius), allowing families to sign up for specific days and times per session, as well as facilitate any changes that need to be made because of the constant change to family schedules. You will not be expected to commit to a certain day and time for a season or entire year!
For example, we intend to offer four different sessions (unique gatherings) between September and Thanksgiving, and families will sign up for all four at once for the fall season. However, you may chose different days and times based on space availability. We intend to offer one session during Advent, and more in the winter and spring.
For each session (unique gathering) we offer, we are currently planning to offer them at these following times and locations:
Monday 4:00pm at the parish hall on the St. Theresa / Billerica center campus
Monday 6:00pm at the parish hall on the St. Theresa / Billerica center campus
Tuesday 4:00pm at the parish hall on the St. Theresa / Billerica center campus
Tuesday 6:00pm at the parish hall on the St. Theresa / Billerica center campus
Depending on how many families sign up for the “Come and See Gatherings”, we may need to offer additional days and times, which will be announced as needed.
