Family Faith Formation

We have been uniquely blessed for more than ten years with a model for faith formation that addresses the needs of the entire family, and not just children. We take seriously the Church's call for parents to be the primary educators of their children, as well as the parish's role to support families in this mission.

The Family Faith Formation program meets once per month for families with children in kindergarten through middle school. Families have the option of coming on either Sunday afternoon or Monday evening. In addition there are prepared home lessons for parents to present to their children. Parents do not have to be experts in the faith, just willing to devote about an hour a week to quality family time in sharing the faith. All of the material is provided for parents and no additional research or study preparation is necessary to do the home lessons.

Understanding the busy schedules of today's families, the weekly lessons at home can be adapted to your own family schedule. This comprehensive program not only engages young children, it draws families together, and it equips parents to do a first-rate job in teaching the Catholic faith to their children.

Despite our best efforts, the effectiveness of any faith formation program is very limited if the faith is not supported at home. We are deeply committed to supporting parents every step of the way.
