Parish Family Catechesis

11/03/2019

Family Catechesis’ basic goal and mission is to help families be the “domestic church” that is needed for the building up of the Kingdom of God. In offering a variety of learning and faith sharing opportunities, family catechesis can, in particular:

  • help families learn how to pray and to discuss their faith together
  • help parents better understand their role as primary catechists
  • bring families together in order to share and deepen their Catholic faith
  • strengthen the relationship between the family and the Church
  • establish ongoing Catholic faith practices within the family life
  • integrate the family into the parish community

Family Catechesis at Epiphany is an opportunity for families to learn about our faith together. It will consist of fun activities and religious education for the whole family. We will  start with refreshments, prayer, and an opening family activity. We will then have an introduction to the theme of the session, then there will be in-depth learning for parents while the children are engaged in an activity with their catechist.  Everyone will come back together for closing prayers.
