Faith Formation is a great way to grow in wisdom and understanding of the Catholic Church. "Always be ready to make your defense to anyone who demands from you an accounting for the hope that is in you" (1 Peter 3:15)
Faith Formation begins in 1st grade and continues through adulthood. The Cathedral offers classes for the formation of children and youth on Wednesdays: 1st-8th grades from 3:45 PM - 5:00 PM, and 9th-12th grades from 7:00 PM - 8:15 PM.
"Education in the faith by the parents should begin in the child's earliest years. This already happens when family members help one another to grow in faith by the witness of a Christian life in keeping with the Gospel. Family catechesis precedes, accompanies, and enriches other forms of instruction in the faith. Parents have the mission of teaching their children to pray and to discover their vocation as children of God.35 The parish is the Eucharistic community and the heart of the liturgical life of Christian families; it is a privileged place for the catechesis of children and parents."1
Adult Education is offered at various times throughout the year. Check the bulletin for details.
