Faith Formation is a life long and ongoing journey for Catholics of any age. The role of the family, the domestic church, is to bring children to know Christ and the gifts of His Church. Holy Family assists families in building this foundation for life long formation by providing continuing classes for all children and their parents from pre-school through high school. The role of faith formation is to invite young people into relationship with Jesus; to a deeper knowledge and love of the Lord through Scripture, the Liturgy and in service to those less fortunate.
Families are encouraged to attend the 9:30a mass. We gather twice per month and classes are held from 10:45 am - 11:45 am. Our new year of formation begins, Sunday, September 13, 2015.Registrations are currently being accepted for the 2015-2016 school year. No registrations will be accepted after September 10, 2015. Baptismal certificate of student must accompany the registration form. Registrations turned in without a certificate are considered incomplete and cannot be assigned to a class.
