FAMILY AND CHILDREN FAITH FORMATION (FF) CORE TOPICS
All parents of children in classroom based Faith Formation programs must attend three (3) of the following CORE topic meetings. The requirements are met by family, not by child, so no matter how many children you have in our programs, you are still only required to attend three (3) Faith Formation events and activities.
We offer a variety of programs and educational opportunities that count toward your CORE topics, including:
- The Sacramental preparation meetings (First Communion, Reconciliation, Confirmation)
- The required Learning about L.I.F.E. classes
- Living in Christ retreat - this counts as 3 Core Topic meetings
- Bible studies presented by the church
- Protecting God's Children workshops
- WIND conference for middle school
