Family Formation

Family Formation

The Family Formation program is centered on weekly family gatherings where lessons, provided by the church, are worked on and discussed by parents and their children at home. The weekly home lessons are then supplemented with monthly meetings at St. John’s where students, led by a trained catechist, gather to learn about a topic in a classroom setting, while their parents meet to receive instruction on the same topic. Ideally, this shared learning experience spills over into the family’s everyday life and leads to discussion in the home about the Catholic Faith and, ultimately, to further growth into the life of the Church.
