How does Family Formation work?

Parents and children in grades kindergarten-5th grade will meet once per month for 1.5 hours to learn more about the faith through insightful teachings and discussions.
This meeting is meant to help parents assume their role as the primary educator and catechist of their children, the children will learn in their separate classrooms among their peers. 

Two weeks later, the entire family gathers after Sunday Mass for a short, 1 hour "community meeting" with activities ranging from picnics and feast day celebrations to prayer groups and adoration.

Over the course of the month, parents teach two lessons to their children at home with the easy-to-use A Family of Faith parent guide and student activity books.

We encourage you to check out the official website for more information, go here

The first meeting of the month, the "lesson" portion of the program meets Sunday from 10:15am-11:45am. 
The "community meeting" is shorter and takes place Sunday from 10:15am-11:15am.
