“God is proclaimed through the encounter between persons, with care for their history and their journey. Because the Lord is not an idea, but a living Person: his message is passed on through simple and authentic testimony, by listening and welcoming, with joy which radiates outward.”
Pope Francis

EDUCATION: Formed in His Communion

Religious education

The mission of the Faith-Formation program at Holy Family parish is to provide resources, guidance, support and worship opportunities to lead people to God. Faith-Formation is a lifelong journey. We seek to help parishioners develop an attitude of conversion, deepen their knowledge of the Catholic Faith, and put their Catholic Faith into practice as we strive to imitate the great Teacher Master and Lord, Jesus Christ the Only Begotten Son of God.

The goals of the Faith-Formation program at Holy Family parish are to assist parishioners and their young family members to become disciples as they journey toward our destiny of eternal presence with God. Pastor and catechists of Faith-Formation propose to effect this through:

  • Establishing a personal relationship with Jesus Christ: through WORD, Sacramental Celebrations, Community Fellowship;

  • Developing an understanding of Sacred Scripture and its application to daily life;

  • Learning about Catholic tradition and its primary beliefs and practices;

  • Developing and deepening parishioners obligation to serve others, especially the least and vulnerable;

  • Incorporating prayer, worship and unitive fellowship experiences as an integral component of their lives;

  • Building an active Faith Community with an outreach to the Interfaith segments in our community; to the downtown workforce; and, to persons without faith or home-church.

  • Giving quality time and presence in discussing and planning the Faith-Formation service, and activities.

Faith Formation sessions meet on Sunday from 9:15 – 10:30 a.m. in the school and convent from September - June. Sessions are offered for children and youth in Pre-K through eight grade.
