We are! Through the love of our Father, all of us are called to pass on our faith. We are the Church! The family, the priest, and the congregation all work together to bring the light, love, and promises of Christ to life.
We are called, as parents, to be the primary educators of our children:
“Family catechesis precedes, accompanies, and enriches other forms of instruction in the faith. Parents have the mission of teaching their children to pray and to discover their vocation as children of God.” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 2226)
Families using A Family of Faith attend Mass regularly, learn and practice prayers together, and engage in spiritual conversations at home, in the car, etc. helping the entire family grow together in holiness.
As Catholics, our unity with Christ is maintained and strengthened through our participation in Mass and the sacraments. As we celebrate the sacraments, we remember Jesus' life, death, and resurrection. When our Children receive Christ's gift of forgiveness through the sacrament of Reconciliation and the the gift of Christ Himself in First Holy Communion, it strengthens our own faith and brings us closer to God and each other.
Baptized children are prepared in 2nd grade to celebrate these two sacraments as part of our religious education program.
Parents of older children who need to prepare for these sacraments should call Gina McDonald at 920-563-3029 or email@example.com
Family of Faith Formation for families with students in Grades 1st - 8th Grade
At the beginning of each month parents, students and St. Joseph faith formation team members will meet for fellowship before breaking off into classroom settings for the students and parent meeting for the adults. Families will go home prepared to engage in family lessons at home before returning next month.
1st Holy Communion and Reconciliation students will meet twice monthly for sacramental preparation. 1 week will coincide with the Family of Faith meeting and one additional week.
Reminder: We follow the public school district regarding weather-related cancellations.
Fees are $45 per student ($60 for non-parishioners) or $120 for families with 3 or more students.
Prayer is a way of communicating with a higher power and seeking guidance, support, and strength. It can be a powerful tool for coping with stress, anxiety, and difficult situations.
