Family Faith Formation

While the catechesis offered within the family is ordinarily informal, unstructured, and spontaneous,
it is no less crucial for the development of the child’s faith. “In a certain sense nothing replaces
family catechesis, especially for its positive and receptive environment, for the
example of adults, and for its first explicit experience and practice of the faith.”
– National Directory for Catechesis, 48.E.1

St. Thomas the Apostle
Family Faith Formation

Faith Formation at St. Thomas the Apostle involves the entire family!

Designed for families with students in K-8th grade, our faith formation process involves presentations, activities, videos, discussion and much more! Home activities will be provided to continue the formation throughout the month.

Family Faith Formation will meet in the Gym one Sunday a month from 11am – 2:00pm. You are encouraged to join us for the 10am Mass and then move to the Gym to continue our formation.

Parents and students will attend and participate in faith formation together. Due to Safe Environment guidelines, all students must always have a parent or guardian present with them during faith formation.

We will be taking a break partway through our session.
