Faith Formation


2022/2023 Children’s Faith Formation

St. Mary Nativity
2022 – 2023

St. Mary Nativity Parish has adopted a faith formation program designed for today’s busy families, and one that will help families keep the Lord’s Day holy.  This year we will study the Sacraments

1st ClassSunday September 18, 2022, from 10 – 10:40 AM.

The Catechism states that Parents “…have the first responsibility for the education of their children. They bear witness to this responsibility first by creating a home where tenderness, forgiveness, respect, fidelity, and disinterested service are the rule.”  (CCC 2223)

10am – 10:40am on Sunday

This allows your family to take part in either the 9:00 Holy Cross or 11:00 SMN Mass.  You can either come to Mass and stay for class – OR – come to class and stay for Mass.

Sophia Press’s Family of Faith program consists of three meetings each month.

FIRST week meeting:  The Director of Faith Formation will meet with parents.  Parents get a preview of the family lesson for the coming month.  At the same time, children will receive their lesson from the catechists in another room.

SECOND week meeting:  this is at your home, so you can pick the time.  It may be helpful to plan a specific time to get in the habit of getting together regularly.

THIRD week and the final meeting of the month:  this is for parents & children together.    Group activities are an opportunity to connect & provide accountability for our lessons.
