6:15 pm – 7:30 pm on Mondays.
Beginning on September 16th
We are excited to announce our upcoming plan for family faith formation at Saint Michael Parish. This spring, Father Dinovo has inspired the faithful of Saint Michael’s by preaching the mission of the Catholic Church, specifically the mission of Saint Michael’s, and proclaiming the gospel with new vigor through his vision Our Faith, Our Mission.
We have been inspired through Our Faith, Our Mission and through Saint John Paul II teaching to align our program to reflect the integral importance of parent and family life in catechesis. Saint John Paul II states, “Family Catechesis precedes, accompanies, and enriches all other forms of catechesis.” Through reflection on our current programming, we have determined that our current program concentrates mostly on the children’s faith formation rather than that of the family. In response, we are aligning our programming to focusing catechesis on the entire family and honoring and supporting parents as the first catechists of their children.
The goal of our Faith Formation programming is to support and empower families to be active missionary disciples within their home, school and parish through faith formation, prayer and community.
