FAMILY DISCIPLESHIP

Family Discipleship is not your ordinary faith formation. This experience transcends the traditional religious education model to include families with children first through sixth grade. The focus is on building a relationship with Jesus while building relationships with one another.

 

We know that parents play the primary role as the first educators of their children and help set a spiritual foundation for their family. At Holy Apostles, we support you in this role by providing tools and experiences to practice their faith, both as part of our community and at home. During Family Discipleship, parents have the opportunity to participate in adult formation to help foster their faith while children are taught in a fun interactive age - appropriate group setting.

 

Family Discipleship meets once a month and is approximately 90 minutes. Childcare is available for children ages 2-5.

SACRAMENTAL PREPARATION

There is no better gift that we can give our children!

 

We are here to support you in your role of passing on our faith to your child. Our religious education programs and our school are here to supplement what you are teaching your child about their faith, and we are right here along side you as prepare for the important moment in their lives where they come face-to-face with God.

Each child who receives a Sacrament at our parish is being welcomed and accepted into our wider faith community, and how we as a community prepare children to receive the Sacraments says a lot about how we understand the Sacrament. Our group centered experiences and celebrations help emphasize the important role family and community play in the nourishment of Christian life. As a community, who come together to witness the communal nature of Reconciliation and the celebration the Eucharist.

Here are a few things you need to know before your child can start to prepare for the sacraments. 

  • Sacrament preparation is done at home with family and materials are provided. 

  • Your child must be at least 7 years old and in second grade or above. 

  • Your child must have at least one year of faith formation prior to preparing for the sacraments. This means that your family needs to participate in Family Discipleship OR your child is enrolled in Catholic School. 

  • Family Discipleship Formation is expected to continue through 6th grade at which time, children will move into Middle School Discipleship.  

  • Families (school and parish) are expected to make their Catholic faith a priority. 

  • Families (school and parish) are expected to be practicing Catholics and participating in weekly Mass.
