    Who is Family Faith Formation for?

    This registration is for anyone with children in grades k-6 who is seeking Family Faith Formation, First Communion, or Baptism for ages 7+ (also known as RCIC). Our Family Faith Formation program is a family-based catechetical program that helps families grow in the transforming love of God by understanding and living the Catholic Faith.

    Monthly Sessions:

    The families meet once a month, September through May, for grade level catechesis and adult formation in the courtyard. Then, in the weeks to follow, your family explores the week's topic at an age-appropriate level using the resources from the packet that you pick up on the family formation night. These lessons allow your family to learn through activities based on the lessons from Sunday Mass, thereby immersing your family in the Church's liturgical year.
     
  • Family Formation’s catechesis model combines monthly Classroom Lessons with weekly Home Lessons.

    Classroom Lessons

    Once a month, students in Grades K-6 meet in classes, divided by grade level, where trained catechists present the lessons.  Parents gather separately where they learn the content for the upcoming month.  This adult component is key to the transmission of Faith in the home.

    Home Lessons

    Parents, equipped with materials and an understanding of the weekly lessons, teach their children the Faith. Weekly home lessons have been developed for two age groups: Preschoolers, and children in Grades K-6. These age-appropriate lessons cover the same weekly topic.  Have been developed for two age groups: Preschoolers and children in Grades K-6. These age-appropriate lessons cover the same weekly topic. Lessons immerse families into the life and seasons of the Church and cooperate with the liturgical cycle. Learning is made fun through the use of games, activities, stories, memory verses, quizzes, and audios/music.
