Lifelong Formation

Family Faith Formation Logo Color

Formation is the act of handing on the Word of God intended to inform the faith community and candidates for initiation into the Church about the teachings of Christ, transmitted by the Apostles to the Church.  Formation involves the lifelong effort of forming people into witnesses to Christ and opening their hearts to the spiritual transformation given by the Holy Spirit. (See USCCB)


Who:  All Families; single person households, those with young children, those with teens and empty nesters!

What:  Family Faith Formation:  An in-depth study of the Creed taught by our parish deacons. After the topic presentation, families who are participating in Family Formation for Religious Education will be guided in how to complete the at-home lessons with their children during the month’s remaining weeks. Our parish provides training and materials for parents    

When: On Sunday, once per month after the 11:15a Mass beginning with a potluck lunch. (Alternate date will be the following Wednesday.)

Where:  The potluck lunch will be in the upper level of the Parish Hall.  After lunch, children age 3 through middle school go to age appropriate groups in the lower level of the Parish Hall, St. Lawrence School gym and Noel Hall. High School aged youth and adults will remain in the upper level for the Deacon’s presentation on the given topic.

Why:  The goal is to aid families as they grow in their love and knowledge of our Catholic Faith.  Family Faith Formation is not just a program; it is a way of life. It provides families with the tools needed to not only to know our Catholic faith, but to live it as well.  Using this format, every youth in the Parish, in Grades 6 through 12, will be able to take advantage of our parish’s dynamic Youth Ministry programs.
