Faith Formation (K-5)

Faith Formation

 Faith must never remain stagnant. Rather, being open to the Holy Spirit to enrich us everyday with the fullness of Christ through prayer, Sacraments and the Catholic Faith. This describes Faith Formation.

Our approach is based on the Catholic Teachings of the Catholic Church and will focus on the weekly Sunday readings with emphasis on its meaning from the age-appropriate point of view.

Faith Formation begins in the home, as the Catechism of the Catholic Church states: “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 service are rules. Home is well suited for education in these virtues.”

Parents are the most vital part of our children’s faith formation. We at Blessed Teresa will assist and support you in your efforts.
