Faith Formation Kindergarten to Grade 7

Registration for Sessions Beginning Fall of 2023 Now Open!

 

Combining in person family sessions with simple and practical at home resources and 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 weekly 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.
