FAITH FORMATION FOR CHILDREN & TEENS
The Church recognizes that parents are the first and foremost teachers of the faith for their children. Catechists (teachers) are resources who work in partnership with parents in providing the information that helps parents provide the formation. Faith formation is a life-long process. It doesn’t end after the celebration of a sacrament or when a teen outgrows youth group. Faith formation is a personal journey that, often, is best shared with those around us, and what better way for parents to spend time with their children than in growing together in faith?
