Registrations for Faith Formation (CCF) is now OPEN! Click here to register!

Dear Faith Formation Parents,
This year we are excited to continue with K-6 family-centered, parent-led catechesis using a
new curriculum called “Family of Faith” by Sophia Institute Press! The two main parts are (There are no weekly classes):

1) The first Thursday of the month there will be a Parent Meeting with a brief teaching
(recorded for later viewing if you are not able to make it), sharing and prayer. You will be
equipped to guide your children through the topics of prayer each month and build
friendships with other parents. Jesus unites us in one faith and mission!

2) There will also be one additional gathering a month where your whole family will attend
a Family Community Meeting for experiences of encounter with God and with other
families. You may select from options to come on Thursday or Sunday. Through this we
hope to encourage parents and build community as we celebrate Catholic life together
through common prayer, service to others, social activities, and liturgical celebrations.


Confirmation Year 1 (7th grade) will take place on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-7:30pm
starting on September 15th and Confirmation Year 2 (8th grade) will take place on Sunday
evenings from 6:30-8pm starting on September 12th. High School Youth Ministry is in the
works, so be sure to register for that as well! First Reconciliation and First Communion
preparation sign up will take place in October.


Mark your calendars for a Parent Information Night on Thursday, August 19th at 7pm.

 

Instructions to register online can be found on our parish website here:

May these words of our beloved patron inspire you to fulfill your noble parental calling;
“Family Catechesis…precedes, accompanies and enriches all other forms of catechesis. Thus, there
cannot be too great an effort on the part of Christian parents to prepare for this ministry of being their own children’s catechists and to carry it out with tireless zeal.”
-Pope St. John Paul II, Catechesi Tradendae

In Christ,
Dominic Salamida
Family Life Coordinator
