Faith Alive in the Home (F.A.I.T.H.) is the parish family formation ministry that supports parents as their children’s primary teacher and living example of faith. It is specifically designed for families with children ages 3 through 5th grade. F.A.I.T.H. is designed to help nurture a relationship with God through prayer, sacrament, and service with the support of a community of families who desire to raise their children in the Catholic Faith.

Families attend breakfast immediately following the 9:30 Mass and participate in adult and children breakout sessions.  Children work in multi-age settings with a team of catechists while the adults participate in a continuing formation setting with other Catholic parents who desire to raise faith-filled children. Sessions focus on topics studied by their children and include a presentation and time for faith sharing.

All adult parishioners are invited to attend F.A.I.T.H.  sessions.  Participation in the adult session is not limited to adults with children or grandchildren enrolled in F.A.I.T.H.
