Bringing children to embrace Christ, explore the Gospel, and celebrate the Kingdom.

We are following  a dramatic interactive approach for all of our children’s sessions.  It’s critical that our children look forward to learning more about their faith.  We want every child to look forward to coming to faith formation sessions each week.  We believe that this style of program helps to accomplish this.

2017-2018 - CLASSES BEGIN THE WEEK OF OCTOBER 1ST

Models of Lifelong Faith Formation from which you are to choose for your children:
  • Home Study (for Grades K-4) meets as a family where the parent is catechist for their own children

FAMILY FAITH FORMATION MISSION STATEMENT

Our Family Faith Formation  process for Good Shepherd Catholic Community is committed to family-centered faith development.  As a caring family we support and strengthen each other by empowering one another to share the knowledge and appreciation of our faith.  Our faith development grows with our life experiences, and through the application of our religious faith in our daily lives, as we serve God and one another.
