Apply Now for Children’s Faith Formation

Welcome and thank you for your interest in St. Gianna’s Children’s Faith Formation.

Every young person comes with a natural desire for truth and openness to the Word of God.  Every response elicited through faith formation should seek to deepen the child’s willingness to be open to the power of the Holy Spirit, and enliven the mind, body and spirit with the peace, love and joy of the Lord.

The faith community of St. Gianna’s, believes that faith formation is a lifelong process and that parents are the primary spiritual and moral educators of their children.  We believe that the most important gift parents can give their children is a strong foundation in our Catholic faith.  The faith of the parents so profoundly impacts their children,  that there is no substitute for parental involvement in their children’s faith formation.  The Children’s Faith Formation process at St. Gianna’s is not a process between the children and the catechists alone. It involves both the immediate family and the church family. It does not replace catechesis that stems from the home but has the priveledged responsibility to support it.

This catechetical experience is made complete when parents and families are examples of the faith.  Families are strongly encouraged to participate regularly in weekend liturgies and Holy Days.  They are encouraged to regulary participate in the Sacraments, serve in Parish ministries, live the Gospel, pray and talk to your children about their faith, live lives of service, and continue in their own personal faith formation.

I have seen many times how God blesses whole families through their children who are attending Faith Formation classes. Be open to the Holy Spirit and my hope is that God touches your heart during this year!

Sincerely in Christ,
