Holy Spirit’s Family Faith Formation is an innovative family formation program that aids and encourage parents as the primary teachers in faith formation. Full parental responsibility in this spiritual growth includes parental attendance along with their children at each month’s session of Family Faith Formation, inspiring and applauding the completion of home assignments, praying with your children, and faithful attendance at weekend mass. It is expected that children in first grade through the reception of Confirmation participate in yearly ongoing faith formation to ensure continuous, systematic, age appropriate catechesis.
Formation is our goal. We hope to help our families become informed, active participating parishioners who are forming and supporting each other in love, worship and service as Jesus did. Family Faith Formation is designed to teach us how to grow in our relationship with God through His word.
Our family faith formation program is designed to help our families learn how to think in a Catholic Christian context. As we learn the process of finding God’s direction in our lives, our learning strengthens our relationship with God and faith continues to form and grow.
Families have the option of attending a Sunday afternoon session or a Monday evening session. The Family Faith Formation sessions will be on the first Sunday of the month and the Monday immediately following. We are asking for families to choose either the 1st session (Sunday’s) or the 2nd session (Monday’s) and you will be scheduled for that session each month. The Sunday Session will begin following the 10 am Mass. The session will be from 11:15 am to 12:45 pm. The Monday Session will begin at 6:00 pm until 7:30 pm. Those students preparing for a sacrament will be required to participate in additional sacrament preparation sessions. Parent/guardian attendance is required for all sessions.
A small snack will be served at all sessions. You are required to stay for the entire session.
