Family Faith Formation

We begin our Family Faith Formation religious education program on September 14th.  We are focusing on Wednesday evenings for this program to enhance other sacramental opportunities which occur on that evening.  These opportunities include daily Mass at 5pm and the Sacrament of Reconciliation at 7pm.  Family Faith Formation will begin at 5:45pm and run untill 7pm and will be offered for Preschool through 5th grade as well as for adults.  The schedule is generally twice a month on Wednesdays and will be held in the Cooney Conference Center in the Diocese of Gaylord Pastoral Center. 

We will be basing our program on specific themes which will apply to all classes.  The cost for the entire year is $20.  Please note: those families who have children preparing for First Communion and Confirmation will receive this instruction outside the Family Faith Formation format.  You may also register through the parish office or simply come and register once classes begin.  These evenings are a great opportunity for your family to share in growing in knowledge and faith in relationship to Christ and His Church.
