About Family Formation
Do you as a parent want to be more involved in helping your children come to know and love Jesus Christ? Their Catholic Faith is the greatest of gifts to pass onto your child that will affect their whole lives long after they have left home.
Family Formation is a truly innovative K-6th grade Catholic religious education program. Based on the principle that "Parents are the primary educators in the Faith" [General Directory for Catechesis (GDC) 255, Family Formation] revolves around weekly family gatherings and home lessons. This shared learning experience spills over into the family's everyday life.

Family Formation at Ascension
We meet on the 1st Wednesday of each month from September - May from 6:00pm to 7:30pm.
In our first year we had a great response - 121 families and 187 students.
Here is some feedback from this year:
~ It was a great way for our family to talk our Catholic Faith at home.
~ I felt my daughter was more engaged and it allowed her to talk about her faith more than in the past.
~ My husband became more involved than he ever had with the faith formation of our kids.
~ Our kids really enjoyed the weekly lessons and time we spend together.
