Faith Families 

Faith Families were reestablished at Communion of Saints School in 2022. Each group has their own unique virtue, color, heritage, and patron saint. Students in grades Kindergarten through eighth grade are randomly sorted into one of four Faith Families at the beginning of the school year. Two eighth grade students are then elected as “Faith Family Leaders” for each group, providing them with a leadership role to strengthen communication, problem-solving, and planning skills.

Students meet monthly with their Faith Family to participate in team-building or religious activities. Previous Faith Family activities have included:

  • Faith Family “Cheers”
  • Stations of the Cross
  • Lenten Retreat Day
  • Mary Gardens

The bond students experience across grade levels within their Faith Family sets Communion of Saints School apart as a Christ-centered community focused on relationships with one another. Below are some facts about each Faith Family. We cannot wait to see where our new students are sorted!
