The program we use at MOTV is called Journey of Faith. We are excited to invite all members of our parish, of all ages, to participate in the monthly sessions!
Journey of Faith is for ages Kindergarten through adult. Sessions meet once per month for 90 minutes and all family members will attend at the same time on the same day. Adults gather to learn and reflect on the month's topic while K-10 grades meet in grade level classes. *At least one parent of youth in K-10 is expected to attend when their children attend.
Sessions meet on Wednesdays at 6:30pm in both locations. If you have a preference on location, indicate that when you register.
See our informational brochure with all the details for the 2023-2024 school year here!
