1-5 years (Pre-K)
Cross Step is the newest addition to St. Francis of Assisi’s Cross faith formation programs. Cross Step is for children ages 1 (and walking) through 5 years old, who are not enrolled in kindergarten for the 2023-2024 school year. CROSS STEP partners with St. Francis of Assisi families by providing their children with a strong foundation on which to build their lifelong faith.
Registered children attend Cross Step while their parents attend Sunday 9:00 AM Mass. Using Pflaum’s Gospel Weeklies’ “Seeds” curriculum, the children will learn about the Gospel for that week and participate in interactive, age-appropriate hands-on activities to teach them about our Catholic faith and traditions. During each session, the children practice the Sign of the Cross, recite various Catholic prayers, and read Lambsongs New and Old Testament picture books, along with completing a faith-based arts-and-craft activity, while socializing with other Cross Step participants in a safe and nurturing environment.
Children attending Cross Step spend a faith-filled hour with trained, responsible childcare workers and volunteers, who are excited to help your children take their first STEPS on their walk with God!
Registration for the Cross Step program is ongoing year-round. Please contact Cross Step Coordinator, Andrea Javier, at email@example.com or at 919-847-8205 ext. 489 for more information.
