Family Faith Formation Program



At Baptism, parents vow to God that they will teach their children the faith.  However, this can be a daunting task these days with the many secular influences that bombard everyone. This is why we are excited to offer a program that helps coach parents on how to teach the faith to their children.  We do this by having one family session a month where the whole family learns together, and a second session in the month where everyone in the family learns separately.  We have also made this program right after the 10AM Sunday Mass so that families can come to church once a week to worship and then learn, instead of having various times for worship and separate aged learning sessions throughout the week.




Who is this program for?  Any family with children ages 5 years to 18 years.

What is the timing of this program?  The Family Sessions are on the first and third Sundays of the month September/October through May from 11:15AM-12:15PM.  Go to the Family Program Calendar tab

How much does it cost?                               

  • $100 per family with 1 child
  • $175 per family with 2 children
  • $250 per family with 3+ children
