Our natural Family is our first community and the most basic way in which we discover the meaning of life and the meaning of our faith. Communicating the faith to our children is one of the greatest responsibilities of Christian parents.
The Church believes in working in partnership with parents and families to bring forth a meaningful faith journey.
Our program will support your family in developing your faith life by presenting the truths of the Word of God. Catechism not only teaches basic Christian doctrine, but also teaches the power of prayer, the healing power of God’s love and forgiveness, how to live according to His law, and how to stay in communion with God in order to live a peaceful, joyful and hope filled life.
