St. Michael Catholic Church

Families of Faith

 

Families of Faith

Kinder to Fifth grade. Meets two Sundays per month (September-May) 10:15 am to 12:00 pm.

Catechesis for the entire family, St. Michael utilizes A Family of Faith program by Sophia Institute to help develop strong Catholic families in which children learn the joys of following Jesus Christ and the truths of our Faith through the witness of Christian life given by their parents. Studies show that parental involvement in the faith-life of their child is by far the most important element in ensuring that a child develops into a practicing Christian.

A Family of Faith follows a four-year cycle: one pillar of the Catechism (The Profession of Faith, Sacraments, Life in Christ and Prayer) is covered per year from September through May. Parents are given a detailed picture of authentic and vibrant Catholic family life, the tools to implement this life in their home, and age-appropriate readings, games, crafts, and other activities to help them deepen among their children a love for Christ and His Church.

Families gather two times per month for an interactive and engaging catechesis session base on the month's topic. Parents leave the session with material and preparation to teach their children at home for the rest of the month.
