    Elementary children will meet in the classrooms while parents will meet in the church to hear a speaker and will participate in small group discussion for some months. The nursery/preschool (Room 1608) will be open for younger children to play during class time. Children must be registered to attend classes.

    What is Family Faith?
     
    Family Faith is about growing in faith together.
     
    Families gather at the church monthly. While the children meet in small groups with warm and caring catechist, parents gather in the Church to participate in engaging sessions with great speakers that will help them grow in their own faith. Children will learn about and live their faith at home with their parents. Parents are provided with easy to use materials and receive addition support and ideas several times a month by email.
     
    Family Faith is about praying together
     
    Children in grades K-5 are invited to participate in the Liturgy of the Word for Children during the 9:00 and 11:00 AM Masses on Sunday. We have opportunities for families to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation and engage in prayer together at our Family Faith Nights.
      
    Family Faith is about serving together

    Families come together to learn and serve on Family Service Nights, along with other volunteer opportunities throughout the year. This gives families an onsite option to serve others as a family.
