Life Long Faith Fromation

Dear Parents and Guardians: When you brought your child/children to the church for their Baptism, you received and accepted the responsibility of raising them in the Roman Catholic Faith.  This is your loving response in thanksgiving to God for the incredible gift of life God has entrusted to you. 

You have carried out this serious responsibility in many ways over the years.  You have taught your children their prayers.  You have told them the story of Jesus’ birth at Christmas and how He loved us so much that He suffered, died and rose again at Easter for our Salvation.  You have taught them about forgiveness, concern and care for others, especially those less fortunate than us.  You have witnessed to them so many aspects of our Catholic Faith by the way you live and share your lives at home each day.

To further deepen their understanding of our Catholic Faith, you have enrolled them in our Faith Formation program.  It is vitally important that you support and reinforce the efforts of our Faith Formation Program by attending an adult Formation weekly class as well.  As a parent or guardian, you must make the weekly attendance at the Faith Formation classes a top priority in your child’s life as well as yours, since learning about our faith is a lifelong process. I am very pleased and proud of our Faith Formation staff and the many volunteer Catechists who so diligently want to assist you in passing on our Catholic Faith.  We have you and your children in a Faith Formation class or activity approximately thirty-nine hours the entire year! Sports, music, art, scouting and other activities should be planned around your Faith Formation classes.  I trust that every Catholic parent and guardian wants have a solid foundation based on God with which they will build their lives on and that each parent would like to hand that solid faith on to their children.

As the Most Holy Eucharist is the center and pinnacle of Catholic life, it is most important that your family participate in Sunday Mass each week and Holy Days of Obligation throughout the year.  Sunday Mass and daily prayer are a critical part of every Catholic’s life.  This is certainly a huge part of our integrity as Christians that we practice what we preach and teach.

I pray that in the coming months you and your children will grow in wisdom, grace and faith as you come to know Jesus better and deepen your understanding and appreciation of our Catholic Faith.  My most fervent desire is that you all will develop an intimate, personal relationship and connection with God.

Sincerley, Theresa Austin - Director of Evangelization
