“Remember that you are never alone, Christ is with you on your journey every day of your lives! Walk with Him who is ‘the Way, the Truth and the Life." St. John Paul II
Our Faith Formation Middle School Program offers a more family-centered approach to Faith Formation at St. Mary’s. The COVID-19 pandemic has also brought more restrictions upon us, as we implement new changes for our middle school families.
Family Faith Formation entails both students and parents attending, learning, praying, and participating in the faith journey together. This year at St. Mary’s, our faith formation approach includes one monthly “LIFT: Living in Faith Together” session, where parents and students will gather once a month following the format described below. Families will then be provided online lessons, activities, discussions, and prayer geared toward growing the faith of your family, the faith of your individual children, and your own faith as a parent, for the next two “at-home” lessons.
We will also provide “Our Catholic Identity” catechism workbooks for the grade level of each of your children as an extra resource, or for families who would prefer to use a book rather than online materials for family catechesis. Each lesson in the book is very user-friendly and has only two pages, including an activity page.
