What is Faith & Family?

Saint John Paul II taught that the prime religious educators of a child are their parents. Parents are called upon to implement Christian values in the daily life of their family. They play a significant role in establishing the foundation of a child’s spiritual development.

Faith & Family is a weekly program at the parish for all ages, including families and singles. Two of the classes each month are on site at STM and the other two classes are assignments taught at home. Adults attend speaker-led presentations, children receive classroom instruction, and childcare is offered to toddlers. The program provides opportunities to celebrate liturgical seasons throughout the year. Faith & Family is for the entire family from ages 3 years old through adults. It is not limited to the immediate family — grandparents, aunts and uncles are also welcome!

Faith & Family runs from October to May.  The two on-site  meetings per month are on the scheduled Sundays after the 8:30am Mass from 9:45–11:15am. Child care is available for children under the age of 3 years old. RSVP is required at the time of registration and prior to the beginning of the program. A minimum of 80% attendance to the program is required.

Forms are also available in the Office of Catechesis (RE Office) and the Information Cove.

Train the young in the way they should go; even when old, they will not swerve from it.
