~ THE READING CATHOLIC COMMUNITY ~
Summer Faith Program for Middle Schoolers

Our Mission:  provide youth with opportunities to grow and develop a closer relationship with Jesus, with our Catholic Faith, and with our Parish Community.


July 2019 Summer Faith Program
An important aspect of the program is active engagement with our faith community in two key regards:
1.  Mass participation
2.  Support by way of time, talent, or material contributions.

1. Mass Participation - We will celebrate Mass at 9:00 am each morning of the program. We are happy to extend the opportunity for our Summer Program students and their families to serve the Liturgy as musicians, singers, lectors, altar servers, greeters, and gift bearers.  Please join us in celebrating the Liturgy by selecting a role at the following Sign-up Genius links:
Program Session July 8-12

Program Session July 15-19

Program Session July 22-26

2. Donations - The needs of the Program are many: from the "front line" participants actively involved as Catechists, to the "behind the scenes" volunteers coordinating day-today support activities, Reading Catholic's formation program is stengthened, enhanced, and made possible through the committed and active involvement of every participating family.

SUMMER PROGRAM Fees:

Financial considerations should never be a deterrant to bringing your child to Jesus.  Please contact the Faith Formation office with any questions or concerns.

Thank you for your interest in the Reading Catholic Community's Summer Faith Program.  Though we offer faith formation for grades 1 through 10 during the academic year, we understand the challenges of scheduling in light of the many commitments families face.  We are thankful to be able to offer a week-long summer program for children who will be entering grades 6, 7, or 8 in the Fall of 2019.

Stewardship:  Be Involved –  Stewardship means caring for our Catholic Community by doing things that allow us to grow in faith and touch others.  As stewards, we each play a part either by committing our time, by sharing our unique, individual talents, or in giving financially as we are able.  Our Summer Program flourishes through a stewardship attitude that all families, as stewards of the Program, commit their time, their talent or their treasure for the benefit of our Youth.  

CONDITIONS OF ACCEPTANCE INTO PROGRAM:
1) Program Fee is verified as paid.  Call office if you have financial considerations.
2) Family commitment is required.  Families engage with this Parish program in many ways:  either through sharing their time and/or their talent and/or their treasure.   
What can I do?  The needs of the Program are many:  either on the "front line" actively involved as Catechist (or Co-Catechist) for a group of children, or "behind the scenes" coordinating efforts,        The Reading Catholic Community's Summer Program is strengthened, enhanced, supported and made possible through the committed and active involvement of every family participating!

- A maximum of 80 students at each grade level will be accepted.
