No matter what your child’s age or grade, there’s a God Tracker’s program for them!
Faith Formation for Children
Preschool and Kindergarten classes for ages 3 and up are held on Sunday morning from 10:05am-10:55am, right in between the 9am and 11am morning masses.
1st-5th Grade classes are held on Monday nights from 6:30-7:40. During class, parents are invited to join in our weekly parent enrichment program for community building, service, prayer, and discussions and videos on faith topics and many other things!
Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is a Montessori-based Faith Formation program for children 3-12 years old. Level 1 serves children ages 3-6. Level 2 serves children ages 6-9. Level 3 serves ages 9-12. Our atrium sessions meet at various times, both morning and afternoon on weekdays.
Sacramental Preparation for children who are in the 2nd grade and above who have NOT received First Reconciliation and First Eucharist spend the year preparing to receive these sacraments. Students are prepared to receive the sacraments within the Elementary Faith Formation program.

Maria is grateful to be welcomed into this loving and vibrant Catholic community. She hopes to be a docile instrument of God’s will to help serve the children and families here at Holy Family Parish.
Simply, Maria hails from Canada. Attempting to “follow the Lamb wherever He goes”, she has been sent to the Bronx and Mexico where she discerned with the Missionaries of Charity, back to Canada where she worked in special education at a Catholic school, then to meet Claudia Petursson through Catechesis of the Good Shepherd training, recently to Poland for World Youth Day, and now to Kirkland to serve in Faith Formation.
Maria has a great love and devotion to Our Lady. Her favourite saints are St. John Paul II, Padre Pio, Mother Teresa and St. Therese. She is convinced that her Guardian Angel is the most wonderful personal assistant.

Claudia has her Masters of Divinity (MDiv) degree from Seattle University.
Her favorite Theologians are the Cappadocian Fathers.
She loves really dumb jokes (ask her about the snake and eagle one!)
She found Hello Kitty duct tape at a craft store and believes that it is proof for the existence of God.
She drove in a rental car to the top of the highest mountain on Earth.
