Family and Faith Educator



The role of our Family Educator is to nurture strong and meaningful parish/parent/school relationships and to explore new models of supporting the spiritual, social and educational formation of families.


There are four domains in which our Family Educator works to do this.
  • Connecting/reconnecting/enhancing the faith life of parents.
  • Connecting/reconnecting/enhancing families to the faith life of the school.
  • Connecting/reconnecting/enhancing families to the faith life of the Parish.
  • Enhancing family well-being.

  • Classroom prayer opportunities for parents and their children.
  • Wrap with Love knitting sessions for parents and students, knitting blankets for the needy.
