FFF REGISTRATION for 2021-22
This past year we were all faced with some major adjustments in our lives. Our faith has helped us adapt to the challenging obstacles that this pandemic has caused. Hopefully, it was a time for you and your families to spend some quality time together. We had to adjust our programs this past year to provide alternative ways to keep your children safe. For 2021-22, we are happy to be planning in person classes for both summer and fall, as well as offering the online option for those who wish to continue via distance learning. For program information, click here for Program Options. Online registration for summer programs will begin May 1. See links below.
TIPS for Registration:
• Please submit your registration only one time, so that your credit card is not charged repeatedly.
• Please use your computer (not your iphone or chrome book).

Thank you to all the families who generously donated to our Drive By Baby Shower that benefitted the St. Gianna Molla Pregnancy Care Outreach Center. A very special thanks to Megan Looney for prompting us to have this special collection. Not only did we collect diapers, onesies and baby supplies, but we also received $390 in check donations! Thanks to Cubby Weil and Nina Kurdzdorfer who volunteered to help out that day, to John Looney, Dr. Susan Wright and Mary Pesarcheck for delivering donations to St. Gianna Molla, and to Clare Stark for assembling our shower favors (bottom right)! We are so humbled by everyone's generosity- God bless you all.

Dear God, Give us the courage and strength today, to carry out your will.
May we keep an open heart and mind, and listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit.
When life presents us with challenges that consume us,
let us know that you are always present with us.
May we feel the comfort of your unconditional love.
Keep us strong and confident in all that we say and do. Amen.
