Growing in Faith at Home as a Family

To Donate to Youth Group Events through the Pick-A-Pledge Fundraiser – Click Here!

We urge parents, teens and children to find other ways to dive into your faith. We encourage families to spend more deliberate time in family prayer experiences at home, as well as setting aside “quiet time” for their families to take personal prayer time each day.

What should my child know and by what age?

I have put together a booklet to help parents meet certain benchmarks to keep their child(ren) on track as they grow and learn their faith. This fall we will begin using these standards in our Faith Formation programs to check the knowledge of the students. Please take some time to work on these with your children. I recommend beginning at the lowest age group and work up to your child’s current age/grade. This is not to add stress to you or your children, it is a tool for us to determine the knowledge of the faith with the children. Click on the link below to view booklet.

Basic Prayers and Teachings of the Catholic Faith for Families

We also urge parents to take advantage of Formed.org, an online platform of Catholic content for all ages that is completely free to our parishioners! To access Formed.org, you will need to register if you are not already. To do this
