Welcome to Family Faith Formation! 

The Religious Education programs of St. Charles Borromeo Parish are attentive to the spiritual formation of all members of the parish faith community.  At every level, we focus on catechesis, fellowship, service and prayer.  As a parish we welcome the people of God; we fulfill our baptismal promise to teach about God in the Catholic tradition; we encourage our community to live the Gospel in service to one another; and we celebrate together as one family in prayer and sacrament.

What does Family Faith Formation look like?

  • A parish-based program that enriches the faith of the entire family

  • Twice a month grades pre-k through 8th will come to the parish with their parents (at least one): Parents will hear from speakers while the kids go to their own faith formation class

  • 2x a month, parents will do at home lessons with their family (30-45 minute lessons in place of weekly Religious Education)

  • Seasonal activities will be an opportunity to bring all families together! From family Adoration, to the Sacrament of Reconciliation,  a Family Living Rosary, Movie Night and more! 

 Why Family Faith Formation?

  • Studies show that parents are the MOST IMPORTANT element in a child’s faith-life. This is why the Church asks parents, at their child’s Baptism, to accept the responsibility of forming their child in the practice of the faith. Family Faith Formation is designed to give you the tools and confidence to live that promise!

  • Family Faith Formation will allow the parents to experience community in the parish, find support among other Catholic parents, and learn, experience, and grow in their own faith along with their children!

  • Is it hard to get here every week? Family Faith Formation gives YOU the flexibility you need to deepen your family’s faith together at a time most convenient for YOU.

  • The adult Faith enrichment portion with speakers is open to all adults in our parish which will help develop greater community.
