Family of Faith is the Cathedral parish's family catechetical process. Parents attend a monthly workshop where they learn through teaching, discussion and activities while their children are participating in age-appropriate and fun activities. Parents then teach their children at home with lessons and activities that involve the whole family. Each month, families come together for fun events to help them develop into a community of families who pray together, support each other, and live the life of discipleship together.
All adults of the parish are invited to attend the monthly teaching sessions, but a special invitation is extended to parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, guardians, young couples preparing for marriage - anyone who has or will have responsibility for passing on the faith to children. This faith formation opportunity is open to parents of babies and toddlers and children in grades K-8. If you send your child to public school, Catholic school or you home school, this is the place for you!
Although our 2020-2021 Family of Faith year has come to an end, we are looking forward to starting a new year in September! Below are some of our upcoming events prior to the start of the year.
