Combining e eight engaging in person family sessions with nine simple and practical at home sessions and two special events that will focus on fellowship and community service, families will explore their faith in our parish community and most importantly at home.  Perfect for busy families that find regular Sunday morning sessions difficult to schedule and for families that due to distance to St. Theresa’s Church makes regular attendance difficult.

What is the goal and mission of Family Style Faith Formation?

“Believing parents, with their daily example of life, have the most effective capacity to transmit the beauty of the Christian faith to their children” (Directory for Catechesis n.224)

  • Help families to learn to pray and to discuss their faith together

  • Help parents to better understand their role as primary catechists

  • Bring families together to share and deepen their Catholic faith

  • Strengthen the relationship between the family and the Church

  • Help establish ongoing faith practices within family life

  • Integrate families into the parish community

  • Help families grow in service to others in the wider community

 

Because faith grows with those who are closest to us, Our Lady of Peace Parish is offering "Family Style" Faith Formation for families with children in Kindergarten to Grade 7.

Registered families will receive simple to follow pamphlets for each home session that includes a story, discussion questions and simple activities, access to dedicated Facebook page for Family Religious Formation and peer mentors.

For children in Grade 2 wanting to receive 1st Eucharist this year, families are asked to participate in Family Faith Formation and Sacrament Preparation will take place throughout the year, beginning with preparing and receiving the Sacrament of Reconciliation. 

Registration fee is by donation.  

We have decided to make our program registration fee by donation.  Families may choose what they are able to contribute to this parish program.  This allows us to issue you a tax receipt for donations over $20.00. Our Lady of Peace Parish makes faith formation a priority in the parish, as a result it is one of our largest expense after building maintenance and salaries.  All donations made to our faith formation program are greatly appreciated.

 

Donations for registration can be made by e-transfer to olpdonations@gmail.com.  Please be sure to include your name and a message that your donation is for Faith Formation programs.
