resources for family faith formation
Family life is often hectic! Finding time to gather as a family to connect and reflect on our faith can be hard to do. And yet sharing your faith with your children can be a most rewarding and fulfilling experience.
You are your child's best teacher. By worshiping and talking about your faith you set a powerful example. And you don't need to be a seminarian to have those discussions with your family.
We hope this page gives you some easy to use resources for at-home faith formation. (And some fun family time!)
