Family Formation: An Introduction

Family Formation is a tried and true model and curriculum developed by parents who were searching for a better way to convey and pass on the Truths of the Faith to their children.

 

 COVID & CATECHESIS

In times like these, our Catholic Faith reminds us that there are blessings in everything.

One of those blessings is that families have the opportunity to enjoy family life together in an unprecedented way, and perhaps now is the time to embrace this blessed opportunity to create a real shift in how families are living out their Catholic Faith.

Family Formation is a parish-born, prayer-inspired, Catholic Family Catechesis program that for over 30 years has been transforming parishes by successfully strengthening families in the Faith and engaging families in parish life.

We have had such positive response from our families about the Family Formation program that I am sharing it with other parishes in our area. The teacher presentations are clear, simple, and complete. Thank you for making this available for other parishes!
