Faith Formation

“The future of the world and of the Church passes through the family.”  

Pope John Paul II, Familiaris Consortio  


Dear Parents/Guardians,

We believe that children begin their spiritual journeys at a very early age, and we act in partnership with parents and our worship community to create an engaging, nurturing environment for Christian formation.

“The role of parents in education is of such importance that it is almost impossible to provide an adequate substitute.  The right and duty of parents to educate their children are primordial and inalienable.” CCC 2221

Education in the faith by the parents should begin in the child’s earliest years.  This already happens when family members help one another to grow in faith by the witness of a Christian life in keeping with the Gospel.  Family catecheses precedes, accompanies, and enriches other forms of instruction in that faith.  

Parents have the mission of teaching their children to pray and to discover their vocation as children of God.  The parish is the Eucharistic community and the heart of the liturgical life of Christian families; it is a privileged place for the catecheses of children and parents.” CCC 2226

Parents are the spiritual leaders of their families and the primary catechists to their children.  They are called to model a vibrant Catholic faith for their children.  The influence of parents on the faith lives of children cannot be denied.
