Faith Formation for Families




The Faith Formation for Children is a process in which our catechist team (staff and parishioners) partner with parents in the task of mentoring their child into living our  faith.  Through this process children and adults are invited to discover and to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ iso as to live more fully our Catholic Christian faith.  As disciples we are called to make Christ present in the world through the Body of Christ, the Church.



Family & Faith Process:

Families gather in September for an orientation of the Family & Faith process and begin their Faith Formation journey.  Families gather each month of the Faith Formation season (September through April) to share what they have discovered during their home studies, as well as how they (as an  individual and as a family) have put this new knowledge into practice.  The next unit of study is presented to continue their exploration of the faith.

Families selecting this Faith Formation option  will complete a Family &  Faith contract which outlines the expectations as part of their registration.
