K-6 Family-Based Faith Formation is in Lubich Hall on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month.
Families with students in grades K-6 are welcome to participate in a family faith formation program, which uses the "A Family of Faith" curriculum from the Sophia Institute. This program seeks to support and nurture strong Catholic families by encouraging and equipping parents to share their own faith with their children.
Families will gather at the church twice each month, starting in October and running through April. These sessions will be held on the 1st and 3 rd Wednesdays from 5:30-6:30 p.m. During the first session of each month, Father Jerry will speak to parents and students about a faith topic. During the second session of each month, small groups will work together to explore and learn more about the faith topic for that month.
This program also seeks to build Christian community by connecting families with other families within the program. Families will be assigned to a cohort, which is a small group of 3-4 other families which they will do the small group activities with throughout the year. This ongoing association allows families to build trust and relationships. Families are encouraged to request other families which they would like to be grouped with.
An extensive Parent Guide book will help parents lead students through engaging at-home activities during the weeks that they do not have sessions at the church.
