The Family Cluster Model offers intergenerational learning for parents and children in Grades 3 – 8.*

  • Clusters, which are self-selected and formed, usually consist of 2 to 5 families.
  • One or both parents and child(ren) participate.
  • Clusters meet monthly in one another’s homes.
  • The families in the clusters determine monthly meeting times.
  • Adults share teaching, leadership and hospitality.
  • Cluster representatives attend planning sessions with the Religious Education team.
  • Participation in clusters involves a serious commitment to be present at all sessions.
  • Students preparing for the Sacraments must enroll in the traditional classroom instruction program*.

*Students preparing for the Sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Communion (typically Grades 1 and 2), and students preparing for the Sacrament of Confirmation (typically Grades 9 and 10) must enroll in the traditional classroom instruction program.
