Are you a parent looking for a tool to help you teach the Catholic Faith to your children?
Learn about using Family Formation in your home.
Through weekly Home Lessons, Family Formation helps parents pass on the Catholic Faith to your children and grow in faith and holiness.
This model enables parents to be “the primary educators in the Faith.” [General Directory for Catechesis (GDC) 255]
Driven by Sacred Scripture, lessons cover all the major principles of the Catholic Faith. See a complete overview (PDF) »
Home Lessons are unique, challenging, and creative and designed to make living the Faith a way of life and a life-long learning adventure. The Home Lessons are easy to use and have been developed and used by parents amidst busy family life.
Each month, families receive a packet of three weekly lessons in the mail. These lessons bring the whole family together to study and then apply the teachings to their day-to-day family life. (The year begins with one Home Lesson in September.)
WEEKLY HOME LESSONS:
In addition to Home Lessons, Family Formation offers curriculum to prepare children to receive the sacraments of Reconciliation and Communion for the first time. This curriculum may be used separately from the Family Formation Home Lessons, but ideally they are designed to be used together.
