This year for Family Formation we are using A Family of Faith program put out by Sophia Press. It is a unique family catechesis program which promotes parents as the primary educators of their children in the Catholic Faith. Studies show that parent involvement in the faith-life of their children is by far the most important element in ensuring that the child develops into a practicing Catholic adult. Our goal is to empower the parents, so that they not only commit themselves to teaching the Faith to their children, but that they are also equipped to do it. Our mission is to help parents to be the role models God is asking them to be and to fulfill the promises they made at the Baptism of their children and on your wedding day.
Family Formation (1st - 6th Grade)
This program is aligned with the Church’s three-year Liturgical cycle. A typical month includes one parent’s instructional meeting at Church, followed by one Home Lessons for families to complete during the other weeks of the month. The children meet at the Church for lessons the first and third Wednesday of each month with their Catechists. Each Home Lesson typically has a teaching component and an activity to reinforce what has been learned, with a quiz at the end of the lesson as well.
