Dear Faith Formation Families,
Faith Formation will be beginning very soon. We are looking forward to teaching your children the Catholic Faith. Life is complicated! But framing hard times in the context of Scripture can help calm and comfort our kids. And when we read words about God's love, mercy and compassion to our kids, they will remember it as they grow. The Holy Spirit puts His Word in our hearts to be called to mind when we need comfort the next time.
Please register your child as soon as possible so we can have enough books ordered. All children are welcome. If any sacraments have been missed, we will work with the child and family to get those sacraments accomplished. We have a class for the youngest children as well to learn about their faith, play games, and interact with others. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
Please continue to come to our Holy Mass.
May God Bless all of you.
