Family Formation

 Renewing The Family One Lesson At A Time

About Family Formation

Do you as a parent want to be more involved in helping your children come to know and love Jesus Christ? 

Do you want to find ways to pass on the faith and live it in your family?

Did you know Ascension Parish has a program for anyone in Kindergarten – 6th Grade?  This program is for children who attend public schools, home school and Catholic schools.  Our Catholic Faith is the greatest of gifts to pass onto your children that will affect their whole lives long after they have left home.

Family Formation is a truly innovative faith formation program.  Based on the principle that “Parents are the primary educators in the Faith”  (General Directory for Catechesis 255).  Family Formation revolves around the family. This shared learning experience spills over into the family’s everyday life.

Family Formation:

  • A great Catholic curriculum!
  • Brings the Faith alive through dynamic lessons, activities, and audio 
  • Follows the three-year liturgical cycle and points families to what is happening in the Church year.  
  • Is driven by Sacred Scripture.
  • Is faithful to the teaching of our Catholic Faith.

Family Formation has been at Ascension for 5 years now.  It’s not only for non-Catholic School kids but every family is invited to participate!

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.”
