Forming Faith Together: Parent Page

 As disciples we are called to make Christ present in the world through the Body of Christ, the Church.

“The work of handing on the faith to children, in the sense of facilitating its expression and growth, helps the whole family in its evangelizing mission. It naturally begins to spread the faith to all around them, even outside of the family circle. The family is therefore called to contribute to building up the Christian community and to bear witness to the Gospel in society. -Directory for Catechesis #231

SPECIAL REQUEST to FAITH FORMATION FAMILIES:

Our parish is offering prayers and support for one of our families, and faith formation families are asked to participate. Brendan Nelson, a second grader in our parish school has recently been diagnosed with cancer. Please keep the Nelson family in your prayers and consider coming out to the fundraiser on Satruday Oct 16 at Firewater! #bbrave #bstrong #bfearless
