Family Faith Formation


Family Faith Formation Logo

Welcome to Holy Family Faith Formation at Holy Family Cathedral.  Parents have the unique obligation to pass on the Truths of Catholic Church to their children. At Holy Family Cathedral, our Faith Formation goal is to support parents as they share this faith with their children.  We are excited to be using new materials this year to that end. The program entitled FAMILYformation is written and published at the Church of Saint Paul in Ham Lake, Minnesota. This program provides the necessary materials for each family to use at home. Our clergy, staff and volunteers will show each family how to implement regular prayer and study in their homes. Monthly our clergy will answer parent’s catechetical and practical questions. In the classrooms, we will offer incentives to children for their diligent participation.  Additional books and materials will be utilized for First Communion preparation as well as Junior High (7th & 8th grade).

The Family Faith Formation gathering will take place on the 1st Wednesday of the month with a few exceptions for holidays and parish-wide feast-day celebrations. Each month families will gather as part of the Wednesdays at Cathedral program. Parents will receive instruction on materials from our clergy while their children participate in a fun and engaging class designed to reinforce what they are learning at home and aid in memorization. Parent materials will include reading material, prayers and Bible verses to be read and prayed with their families, in their homes the rest of the month. Recognizing that preparation for sacraments is extra special, additional support will be offered for parents and children preparing to receive sacraments next spring.  

The Wednesday evening schedule is listed in the weekly Sunday bulletin and on our social media accounts. Families may also contact the Office of Family Evangelization at for more information.  Registration and consent forms may be obtained from our parish website at, in the office or emailed upon request.


The Wednesday evening faith formation program is designed for families and children in kindergarten through 8th grade. High school students are encouraged to give back by becoming a FIAT team member, Faith In Action Team, and assist in the classrooms.  High school students have the ability to lead by example, earn needed service hours and share their joy with younger students.  


Please see our High School Faith Formation page for High School information.

First Communion information can be found here.





If you would like to assist with the religious education program, you may call Monica Conro, Director of Family Evangelization , at the parish. We would love to have you join us in this very important evangelization mission.
