Families Growing in Faith

Families Growing in Faith End of the Year 2019-2020

 

Since we were unable to finish the year the way we wanted with the large group event and the celebration of the Family Faith Mass, please consider the family experience linked below as a gift to the families of St. Michael Parish.  We all need to hope to carry on expecially in uncertain times.  This is a flexible activity that each family can use in a way that works for them to identify and share their reasons for hope. Sharing our reasons for hope can become a source of hope for our entire parish community.  Click on the image below to start!

 

 

Families Growing in Faith (formerly PSR)

Families Growing in Faith is a specific initiative intended to meet families where they are spiritually and help them on their faith journeys.  Through supported home learning or grade level classes supplemented by family chosen service, prayer, and fun activities, and large group events for learning and building community, we strive to make evident the presence of the divine in the midst of daily life.  Integral to this goal is to equip and empower parents, along with grandparents and other family members, to help their children grow into joyful, compassionate, missionary disciples of Christ.

Two options are available to maximize flexibility for busy families.

 Family Faith with Classes:

  • Students will attend grade level classes scheduled for 24 weeks from September-April on Sunday mornings.
  • Families will be required to attend large group family events during the year. These will be 2 hour sessions with an emphasis on community building and experiential learning.
  • Families will select and complete a monthly service experience and a monthly prayer experience from September-April. Each experience will need to be at least 30 minutes.  A curated website will contain many options for families to choose what is best for them.

2. Families Together:

  • Families will complete age level lessons at home with materials provided and support as needed from parish staff and knowledgeable volunteers.
  • Families will be required to attend  large group family events during the year. These will be 2 hour sessions with an emphasis on community building and experiential learning.
  • Families will select and complete a monthly service experience, a monthly prayer experience, and a monthly family fun experience each month from September-April.  Each experience will need to be at least 30 minutes. A curated website will contain many options for families to choose what is best for them.
