Family Faith Formation for Grades K-5
The Family Faith Program is an innovative K-5 Catholic religious education program based on the principle that parents have the most influence on the faith of their children.Elementary children will meet in the classrooms while parents will meet in the church to hear a speaker.The nursery/preschool room will be open for younger children to play during class time.Kindergarten students may register for monthly Family Faith on Wednesday evening or our weekly Sunday School Program. They can choose to attend both for no extra charge if desired. Children must be registered though to attend both.A First Grade option is available this year on Sunday morning during 9:00 Mass. Drop off your First Grader for class once a month instead of coming to class the one Wednesday per month.Register for either the Wednesday once a month class or Sunday Morning once a month.Contact Janet Etten with any questions about Sunday Morning programs. 651-415-3330What 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 togetherChildren 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 at Family Faith Works, along with other volunteer opportunities throughout the year. This gives families an onsite option to serve others as a family.
