Mater Dei Homeschool Group (MDHSG) is a support group for Catholic homeschoolers who are Mater Dei parishioners or friends. We are not affiliated with any teaching co-op. Our members span from those who have been homeschooling for 20+ years to those who are interested in homeschooling but don’t have school-age children yet. Wherever you fit on the spectrum, we welcome you!
We provide support through monthly Mom meetings, liturgical year festivities, fellowship and fun events, service work, field trips and resource and information sharing. Each year we look to build upon the last by sponsoring favorite traditional activities and welcoming new ideas, too. Activities are coordinated by volunteer group members.
Regular sponsored activities include:
Monthly Mom meetings
Held on the second Monday of the month, September-November, January-May in the parish hall. Meetings start at 7:00 pm with socializing over potluck food followed at 7:45 pm by an informational presentation of the month’s topic of discussion regarding education and/or family life.
Liturgical Year Festivities
Annual events have included an All Saints party we sponsor for the parish community, children’s St. Nicholas and St. George parties, a Valentine’s Ice Skating Party, and a Couples’ Date Night around Valentine’s Day.
Fellowship & Fun
Other activities our group has sponsored include various Field Trips, an annual Fall Homeschool Field Day, First Friday Mass/Park Days, Youth dances as well as a High School Graduation Mass and Ceremony/Reception open to area Catholic homeschooling students.
