Learning to Live the Catholic Faith Together

By taking this faith journey, it is our hope that your family will experience the comfort of knowing that some things remain constant and true in life: our Catholic faith and the Unconditional, Eternal Love of God.

This section includes resources for Families with Children Grades 1-5

We want to better equip you, as parents, to communicate the faith and have fun along the way! We want your children to experience you as the primary disciple of Jesus, who shows them in turn how to be disciples. 

We will all walk on a journey of faith towards encountering Jesus:

  • In Opening the Word (Prayer, Scripture)

  • Breaking Bread with Others (Mass)

  • Living our Faith (by Serving the Needs of Our Community)

  • Sharing the Good News with the Whole Parish (Building Church)
