Faith Formation for Children & Families
Faith Formation for Families and Children
Parents, grandparents and guardians are the primary teachers of our children in the faith. In partnership with those who care for our children, St. Mary's offers a classroom model of religious formation and includes opportunities for Christian service, liturgical participation and modeling the Christian life. The process also incorporates retreats and other gatherings considered part of the comprehensive experience. We encourage all families, including those who home-school, to take advantage of these opportunities for their children by enrolling them in the parish faith formation process.
All preparation for the reception of the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Communion will take place within this classroom setting. Parish Faith Formation programs employ approved materials of both the American Bishops and each diocesan authority.
