Faith Formation is the process of making the baptized into true Disciples of Christ – this is a process that takes every day of our lives! We do this with children in Grades 1-5 in the following ways:
Learn about God: Religious Education classes are offered to help children learn about God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Classes are offered Sunday mornings in Weston, 10:10-11:10 am; Monday afternoons in Weston, 2:45-3:45 pm; and Monday afternoons in Lincoln, 4:15-5:15 pm.
Know God: Through our Sunday Liturgies, our Sacraments, and our prayer life, the children experience moments of encountering God. Each grade level “hosts” one or two Masses per year, to experience ministry within the Sunday Mass. Prayer life is introduced, experienced, and encouraged.
Serve God: Throughout the year, suggestions and experiences of moments to help others, and make the world a better place, are offered to the children and their families. Example: each grade level “host” Cafe Julia once a year, setting up, serving, and cleaning up from this Sunday morning event.
Parents are always the primary teacher of our Faith – you are blessed with the presence of your children for far more time than any other human being! This task can feel overwhelming for many parents, so the Faith Formation staff is present to assist parents in any manner. You are always welcome to contact us with any question or concern you may have. Let this disciple-making process of you and your family be a wonderful experience!
