Faith Formation Info

Faith Formation equips the parents in your parish to pass on the Catholic faith to their children enabling them to grow in their faith together as a family.

Faith Formation provides a unique, challenging, and creative curriculum that is family-based, includes adult catechesis and training for parents, is founded on the Truth and teachings of the Catholic Church, and is designed to make living the Faith a way of life and a life-long learning adventure.

Why Faith Formation?

A careful reading through the documents of the Catholic Church quickly reveals the Church’s great expectations for the family.  “The right and duty of parents to give education is essential, original and primary, and it is irreplaceable and incapable of being entirely delegated to others.” Familiaris Consortio, 36 “The family is a domestic church.”  Lumen Gentium, 11.
