Family Formation

Recently I received an email from Deb at the Church of St. Paul in Ham Lake, Minnesota. They would love to get the word out about their Family Formation program. I have a tiny bit of experience with the idea and materials -- a dear friend of mine used to attend the Church of St. Paul (though she's now moved to another state) and she showed me some of the things they were doing there. I was impressed.

The program is based on the Church's teaching that parents must be properly equipped to teach the faith, and they can then, in turn, pass on the faith to their children.

This page of the Family Formation website highlights the Church documents that support family catechesis. This is good stuff.

For more information, visit their website.

I've used this program for 3 years. It is excellent and worth every penny.

I agree with Paula that this is an excellent program -- solid AND fun --and worth every penny! We used it for several years, only quitting when our youngest outgrew it, and it was one of the best faith-related learning resources we've ever used. We just wish there was a component for older kids and teens.
