Then work at home as a family using the same book with activities geared for different age levels. This is an option with both flexibility and fellowship!

Faith Formation, previously referred to as Religious Education, is intended to begin by 1st grade and continued through Confirmation. After Confirmation we continue learning about our faith as we live and share it. Our goal is to assist families, where the majority of the faith is learned, along their path. Let us know how we can help!

Prayer for the Holy Family Of God

O God, who was pleased to give us
the shining example of the Holy Family,
graciously grant that we may imitate them
in practicing the virtues of family life.
Transform our doubt to faith; Strengthen our hope;
Help us to live in charity.
Until we are all one in your kingdom
through Jesus Christ, your Son,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
One God, for ever and ever.
