Faith Formation for Children
Parents! - You are the single greatest influence on the spiritual and religious life of your children. This can be a daunting task especially in this day and age. Every Christ must deal with many challenges on this faith journey - consumerism, technology, media & social media - just to name a few. Nothing can replace the influence a parent's example has on the spiritual life of a child.
Parents may feel inadequate when it comes to teaching the faith to their children.
Instead of thinking of Faith Formation as a school subject, think of it as a way of living. What you do every day with your children makes a huge difference in their lives.
- Praying at home and at Church and attending Sunday Mass teaches the importance of a God-centered life.
- Serving in ministry at Church and in places like food pantries, soup kitchens and outreach centers teach the importance of service.
- Being present and authentic with each other and taking the time to be with each other teaches the importance of relationship.
The essence of the Faith is a Person - Jesus Christ. This Christian faith really is - at its heart - all about our relationship with Jesus Christ and with each other - his mystical Body. We do not live this faith alone. Your parish is committed to supporting parents and families in teaching, loving and loving our faith.
