What does Family of Faith look like?

  • A parish-based program that enriches the faith of the entire family.
  • This program is our primary means of handing on the Catholic Faith to the children of the parish.
  • Once a month Sunday sessions meet at St. Bridget - at least one parent, guardian, or grandparent must attend with their child(ren) in Grades Pre-K through 7th. Parents, guardians, or grandparents will receive faith formation in Mitchell Hall while the children go to their own faith formation class in the school.  Childcare is available for children age 3 and younger.
  • At home during the month - parents, guardians, or grandparents will do lessons which are scripted in A Family of Faith Parent's Guide with their child(ren).  A Family of Faith Child Activity Book corresponds to the parent's guide instructions.  These lessons vary by age level and length of time to complete.

 

Why Family Faith Formation?

  • Studies show that parents are the most important element in a child’s faith life. This is why the Church asks parents, at their child’s Baptism, to accept the responsibility of forming their child in the practice of the faith. This program is designed to give you the tools and confidence to live that promise.

  • A Family of Faith Formation program will allow parents, guardians, or grandparents to experience community in the parish as well as find support, learn, and grow in their own faith along with their child(ren).

This program gives you the flexibility you need to deepen your family’s faith formation together at a time most convenient for you.
