Home > Family and Children Faith Formation


Our catechism teaches us that every parent is a catechist. Catechesis (instruction in the faith) begins the moment a child is born. "Family members help one another grow in faith by the witness of a Christian life in keeping with the Gospel... Parents have the mission of teaching their children to pray and to discover their vocation as children of God." (Catechism of the Catholic Church, #2226)

In order to help all of our parents continue to grow and nurture their spiritual gifts, we require all parents to attend Faith Formation events and activities. Find out more about the topics being offered and the requirements for the families of kids in our classroom programs or for the families of kids in our Family Home Study program.

We offer a variety of programs and educational opportunities to assist parents in the instruction of their children, including:

In order to participate in Family and Children Faith Formation Programs, parents must be registered parishioners and must register their children with the Religious Education Programs office. Please read our Tuition Policy, our Attendance Policy and our Snow Day Policy.

Feel free to Contact the Faith Formation Office with any questions or concerns.
