"And we need simplicity to pray as a family: simplicity is necessary! Praying the Our Father together, around the table, is not something extraordinary: it’s easy. 

And also praying for one another! The husband for his wife, the wife for her husband, both together for their children, the children for their grandparents …. praying for each other. This is what it means to pray in the family and it is what makes the family strong: prayer."

– Pope Francis Homily, October 27, 2013

St. Andrew and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton
Family of Faith
2021-22

The philosophy of Family of Faith is to empower and equip parents to serve as the primary catechists of their children.  Our pastoral team will host monthly parent gatherings, where parents are given the resources, knowledge, and understanding of the lessons and activities that they will be teaching their families at  home for the rest of the month.  Parents learn (or re-learn!) the faith right alongside their children. Our prayer is that this religious education format will allow flexibility and time for parents’ incredibly busy schedules while also creating intentional time spent in conversation about faith at home. Secondly, every other month we will come together with both parents and children for a community/faith gathering. These social events will help show parents that teaching the faith can be done through fun every day activities. There will also be optional social gatherings throughout the year to foster community. 

Family of Faith is our faith formation for public school families, but welcome our parish school families to participate as well. For the students preparing for Sacraments, there will be additional separate monthly formation meetings. First Communion and First Reconciliation classes are for students in the 2nd grade. Confirmation is a 2 year formation process beginning in 7th grade. These classes will be taught by parish catechists.
