Faith Formation for the whole family! We offer at-church whole family sessions, at-home supplemental resources, and family faith formation events and programs throughout the entire year designed to help strengthen the faith life of the whole family – the domestic church. Through our faith formation process, we help families/households come to a fuller and richer experience of the presence of God in their lives and grow in their mission of being Christ’s disciples in our world.

How is Sacramental Preparation woven into Family Faith Formation?
Sacramental prep is woven into our Family Faith Formation Program in a very intentional way. Children and youth preparing to celebrate Reconciliation, First Eucharist, and/or Confirmation, will journey with their family to prepare for the Sacraments. If families have more than one child preparing for a Sacrament (or multiple Sacraments), the family meeting will be utilized to determine the best pathway.  


When does Sacramental Preparation for children begin under our model?  


First Communion/Eucharist 

First Communion is a two-year path. First Communion prep begins with a Pre-Communion year as young as 1st grade. 



Confirmation formation is a two-year path. Confirmation prep begins with Pre-Confirmation year as young as 7th grade. 



Coming soon!


“Pathways” by Faith and Family Life Catholic Ministries (FFLCM)
We will be using many resources from FFLCM. Please read about their materials and mission more at their website:  Pathways.

“Pathways is an integrated and family-centered formation suite designed to facilitate a personal encounter with the Trinity and sustain a lifelong development of faith within the family. We are all at different points on the journey and a one size faith formation program does not fit all. This is a shift to a greater focus on parents as the primary educators of the faith. Create a path forward that is best for your families with resources which include home and church experiences.”
