Family Formation


Your Invitation to Fall 2020 Family Formation:
Prayer, Encounter, Mission, & Community

Dearest Families,

We have another great year planned for you and your children! Of course, Family Formation will look different for the Fall due to Covid 19, but we look forward to this special opportunity to grow in our faith together.

This year, we are particularly excited to embark upon a modified approach to faith formation which recognizes parents and grandparents as the most important teachers of our youth, and builds a support system around you. Due to limitations on large gatherings for the whole family, our plan currently includes an adult-only session once per month, October through December. In these sessions, we will provide you with resources and empower you to lead your family closer to Jesus and his mission of love.

Some of the highlights include:

  • Adult-only in-person teachings
  • Take-home lessons for different ages (preschool to teens)
  • Supplemental materials for the whole family
  • Sacramental Preparation - continuing with appropriate safety guidelines
  • Reduced fees to accommodate the new format
  • Continued monitoring of health concerns and plans to adapt in the new year
To sign-up for both Family Formation and Sacramental Prep, please use this form:

Thank you for living out your call as the primary educators and ministers to your children!

We are dedicated to providing the best possible support for your family that we can. As always, we strive to equip our faith community so we may all grow closer to God and each other. Understanding a need for adaptability in these challenging times, we thank you for your flexibility as we continue to monitor safety and health concerns. We thank you for your patience and we welcome your feedback!

Please know that, as a staff, we have all been praying for you, your children and families.

We look forward to worshipping with you!

Restored Order of The Sacraments

For those unfamiliar with the term, it is used in regards to a shift in the preparation and celebration of the Sacraments of Initiation from the order of Baptism followed by First Eucharist at age eight, followed by Confirmation sophomore year of high school, to the early Church’s order of Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist.
