CHILDREN'S FAITH FORMATION
The Children’s Faith Formation Ministry provides an opportunity for us to share our love of the Catholic Faith with the children of our parish community. We are a welcoming community of believers eager to share our faith and embrace new people. It is our privilege and our pleasure to develop a partnership with parents in the formation of their children’s faith. It is our goal to provide a welcoming , safe and stimulating educational environment for our community.
Our Ministry provides for Sacramental preparation of Children from grades 1-5 who attend the public school system. Children should be in first grade to begin, but may begin in any grade. We have a three year preparation program which includes the celebration of the Sacrament of Reconciliation, followed by receiving their First Holy Communion.
Understanding that parents are the first and foremost catechists of their children. It is our commitment to support families as they communicate their love for Christ and his Church. We provide parents with a variety of resources along with monthly meetings to support their efforts. We have a home based caticitical program where the family leads and shares in the faith journey of their children. We encourage parents to bare witness by attending weekly Mass, practicing a consistent prayer life in the home and participating in special celebrations of parish events.
