A Family of Faith

Family Catechesis

for Good Shepherd Catholic Parish

Children learn and retain the Faith best when their parents are models of Christian life. A Family of Faith provides parents with the knowledge, tools, and advice they need to fulfill this role — even if they weren’t catechized well themselves.

Benefits Of A Family of Faith

  • Our children need to continue their catechesis after they received the First Communion.

  • Parents wanting to enroll their children in classes for Holy Communion or Confirmation, however, the parents themselves have not received one or more sacraments can prepare together and receive them during the same ceremony!  (This Includes Baptism, First Communion, & Confirmation for children and adults)

  • Parents that have children with special needs may accompany them throughout their classes.

  • Parents who would otherwise have students attending classes on multiple different days would like to attend as a family twice a month.

  • Parents or students may have other obligations that conflict with traditional program schedules. They can attend A Family of Faith if this program better accommodates their schedule.

  • Parents that are interested in refreshing their knowledge about their catholic faith.

  • Parents that would like to set a positive example to their children by attending classes with them.
