Catholic Homeschooling Community

Faith, Family, Friendship

Welcome to East Bay TORCH, a community for Catholic Homeschoolers!

East Bay TORCH provides a supportive community for Catholic homeschoolers from many parts of the Bay Area. Members enjoy a number of family and parent activities, co-ops, spiritual enrichment opportunities, and connection to other local, home educating families.  

Annual large group events include our Summer Luau for parents, Our Lady's Back to School Picnic and Bake Off, the always popular All Saints Party, Fall and Mardi Gras Family Dances, annual Cookie, Beer, and Teen Ornament Exchanges in December and a Baccalaureate Mass with reception at the end of the school year. First Friday Masses, Children's Holy Hours, Catechism classes, choir, and AMDG co-op are also available to participate in. 

An email list is offered to members for posting group classes, announcing events, activities, or opportunities around the area for students or for furthering Our Faith. It's also a great place to ask questions, post prayer requests and birth announcements, or buy/sell/trade curriculum or other items.

We encourage members to find a place to lead or serve in whatever their season of life may be, such as offering a meal delivery to one of our new moms, helping at a co-op or one of our large events, setting up a park day, or hosting a Rosary night.
