Family Faith Formation

Hello Parents!

Thank you for entrusting your children to our Family Faith Formation program. 

St. Vincent’s Religious Education Department is committed to providing our parish families with the best possible resources and instruction, while maintaining the balance and integrity of family life. 

Family Faith Formation Sessions will be offered once a month on Sundays from 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM. Families attend our Family Faith Formation sharings; in which, during part of the session; children will attend classes with catechists.  (Please refer to calendar for specific dates and times).

Family Formation is a family based Catechetical program for families with children K- 6, which includes an adult formation component. These formation classes will allow families at St. Vincent’s the opportunity to grow together in the understanding and appreciation of the Catholic faith through theological reflection, scripture study, participation at Mass, discussion, prayer, home study, online learning, and activities that enrich and cultivate faith in the home.

St. Vincent’s will be using sophiainstituteforteachers.org as our curriculum for this upcoming years’ Family Faith Formation. Please feel free to view the video below to get a feel for what the program will be like:

 

Attendance:

We will have 8 gatherings of Parents & Students. Please check with the Religious Education Calendar to see class dates.

We understand that parents and families can be very busy. If you are unable to teach the family lesson for the month, then please consider dropping off your 4th-6th grader for class, so your child does not miss out on a lesson.  These classes will be taught on Sunday mornings from 10:30 AM- 11:45 AM in the 6th grade classroom.  Class Dates: 10/30, 11/20, 12/18, 1/29, 3/12.
