Parent Feedback

Phone calls to parents who did not respond to the survey that we sent through Flocknote. We wanted the parents’ feedback on the Faith Formation materials and resources being sent out.
Laureen Young said she has not downloaded the CLOW and Gospel Weeklies handouts. It’s too much material for them right now because they are overwhelmed with all the schoolwork. The kids and Laureen loved the short, animated videos we sent during Holy Week and they love seeing the Friars on the online Mass and daily reflections. She suggested that catechists make short videos to send to the families so the children can see their catechists.
