Family Faith Formation is a part of our Wednesday Night at the Cathedral Program.
Our goal for Family Faith Formation is to give families the tools they need – as primary educators of their children – to impart the faith through word and example. Parents may remain in the classroom with their children for the entire evening if they choose. However, a program entitled Living the Sacramental Life is being developed specifically for parents. The program for parents is designed to give parents the tools they need to be the primary teachers of their children. Part of the evening will be spent in prayer and adoration. and part of the evening will be spent with clergy discussing relevant issues facing families today, in-home catechesis and faith life.
Bless My Soul – is our program for younger students elementary through about 5th grade. They will learn about the Sacraments in an engaging interactive instruction.
Middle School 6-8th grade – this program will focus on the 7 Sacraments.
Faith in Action Team – F.I.A.T – is for students middle school and high school children already receiving catechesis in school. Our Faith in Action team will have opportunities for service, music, drama as well as deep faith formation. High School seniors will have the opportunity for leadership as well.
High School and Confirmation – All High School students will participate in a Theology of the Body program designed specifically for their age. Intermingled with this program is an emphasis on Confirmation as it calls us to be evangelists in the world according to our station in life. This will be suitable for those preparing for Confirmation next spring as well as younger high school students or those already confirmed. There will occasionally be outside speakers giving their time to our youth and parents.
A key part of our Family Faith Formation is service. There will be opportunities throughout the year for all of us to serve and live our faith.
If you have a heart for service and feel called to assist with Family Faith
