Children of Fatima co-op will meet on Tuesday from 10-4pm   We will attend Holy Mass at 12:15 together followed by lunch. Those assigned to clean up duties may be required to stay later.

The co-op has two different Enrollment types that parents will choose from.

CGS Only drop off:

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS) Only

This is a “drop off” program. Parents will be expected to drop off and pick up their child(ren) for CGS in a timely manner. For the duration of class, parents will be expected to leave the Mater Dei property during the CGS class time. All are welcome to attend Mass!!  If parents choose to stay on site, please let one of the board members know so that we may assign a volunteer job and/or assistant position to you.

Children of Fatima (CoF) Co-op

CoF has curated a rich and varied complete schedule tailored according to age group. Co-op begins at 10:00 am.   Classes are interrupted by going to Mass in common, which is a cherished custom of the CoF co-op — those joining commit to attending Mass and staying for the entire time including a thanksgiving. Lunch and recess will follow Mass.

After Mass students then attend the CoF classes that are scheduled for their age group from 2-4pm.  For all children age 3-12 their schedule will include CGS. Children age 6-18 will also participate in Applied Learning, which offers the opportunity to explore a wide range of trades, handicrafts, homesteading, and lost arts.  Parents will remain on the Mater Dei property for the complete duration and will be assigned at least one volunteer job and/or assisting position, embracing this as a true cooperative that relies on the involvement of parent participants.
