What is Family Faith Formation?

Simply put, it is formation for the whole family, parents and children. Formation involves more than catechetical instruction, however.  As Catholics we should strive, yes, to inform ourselves of the teachings of the church. To form something involves molding or shaping.  To that end we need to steep ourselves in the Traditions associated with the Liturgical Seasons and come to know the saints whose lives may then inspire our own. We learn over time how to shape our lives within the mold of the Catholic liturgy, creating a Catholic culture in our family life. Our Faith is something to be lived,  not merely studied.

Family Faith Formation Dates & Forms

Family Faith Formation will meet twice per month following the 10 am Mass, generally the 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month with exceptions to accommodate school breaks and holidays. A continental breakfast and fellowship time is provided prior to the start of class. Parents and students attend class the first Sunday of the month. The second monthly class will be for students only.
