Children's Faith Formation

The mission of the Children's Faith Formation program at Holy Spirit Parish is to help all participants and their families develop a relationship with Jesus Christ and to live out their Catholic faith in ways that draw others to Christ and the Church.

The CCC 2223 can enlighten us regarding our responsibilities as parents.

“Parents have the first responsibility for the education of their children. They bear witness to this responsibility first by creating a home where tenderness, forgiveness, respect, fidelity, and disinterested service are the rule. The home is well suited for education in the virtues. This requires an apprenticeship in self-denial, sound judgment, and self-mastery-the preconditions of all true freedom. Parents should teach their children to subordinate the ‘material and instinctual dimensions to interior and spiritual ones.’ Parents have a grave responsibility to give good example to their children. By knowing how to acknowledge their own failings to their children, parents will be better able to guide and correct them.” (CCC 2223)
