Our Family Faith Formation is an innovative family formation program that aids and encourages 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.
Holy Spirit, St. Helen, and St. Mary’s Kouts participate in the same Faith Formation Program. Each parish meets on different weekends of the month, so if you miss your session at your parish, you may attend one of the other parish sessions. Those students preparing for a sacrament will be required to participate in additional sacrament preparation sessions. If you have a student that has missed receiving any of the following sacraments: Baptism, Reconciliation, Eucharist, and/or Confirmation, we can work on a plan for your child to receive their sacraments.
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.
