FAMILY FAITH FORMATION
All families are invited to participate in Family
Faith Formation whether their children attend public
or private school. The program runs from October
through May each year. Parents attend with their
children the first week of the month, either on
Sunday Morning or Wednesday evening. The children
(only) also attend on the third Sunday morning of
the month. A detailed schedule for the year is
provided at registration during the first two weeks
Children and adults learning together fosters an
increased bonding between parents and their children
and abundant opportunity for daily growing in our
Faith at home. It also helps develop a true sense of
community among the many families of our parish
We are careful to follow closely what the Catholic
Church teaches. We examine each of the four parts of
the Catechism of the Catholic Church; Faith, Liturgy
and Sacraments, Morality, and Prayer. We also
include a study of Scripture and the relationship
between the written Word and Sacred Oral Tradition.
Additionally, we address myths and untruths that
exist in the world about the Catholic Church and
prepare you and your children to share our Catholic
Faith, gently, accurately, and respectfully.
Those who actively participate grow in knowledge of
the truth of the teachings of Catholic Church. It is
through knowledge of the truths of our Faith that we
are better able to live a life pleasing to God and
to share our gift of Faith with others so that they
too might have a place in the kingdom of Heaven.
Family Faith Formation and CCD begins Sunday,
October 6, 2013. Please fill out the registration
form and send/bring to the parish office.

The R.C.I.A. is the Process of welcoming adults into
the Catholic Church. Adults who have not been
baptized, have been baptized in another Christian
faith or baptized Catholics who have not received
the Eucharist and/or Confirmation are invited to be
part of our R.C.I.A. Process journey. There are four
stages in the Process : Inquiry or Precatechmenate,
Catechumenate, Celebration of the Sacraments of
Initiation, and Mystagogy (further Catechesis).
All of these stages have sessions for adults; held
in the Vianney Center on Tuesdays, from 7–9 p.m.

Our doors are always open.
R.C.I.A. ADAPTED FOR CHILDREN

It is especially designed for young people, ages 6

these young people for the Sacraments of Initiation
is part of a journey of faith for the whole family
which helps them come to the realization of God’s
immense love for them.
