Family Faith

PreK – Grade 6 Faith Formation


What is Family Faith?

Ages 3 – grade 2:  The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is an approach to the religious formation of children rooted in the Bible, the Liturgy of the Church, and the educational principles of Maria Montessori. Children gather in an “atrium”, a room prepared for them, which contains simple yet beautiful materials that they use to ponder the mysteries of our faith. Click here to learn more. 

Grades 4 & 5:  Sophia Institute Curriculum with a focus on art and culture.  

Grade 6: A scripture study of Salvation History 

What is the Schedule?

Children will join us regularly on Wednesday evenings.

Parents will join their children on-site periodically for Catholic parenting enrichment, catechesis, liturgical experiences, and parent-child activities. We will offer Parent Enrichment Nights (PEN) once a month with speakers and topics of interest to parents of children of all ages.

What makes Epiphany formation unique?

Your family does! At Epiphany, we want to form a partnership with parents as we all strive to live out our Catholic faith. The church will offer community and tools needed for families to grow in faith together. Families will gather once a month for Parent Enrichment Nights at Epiphany and children will attend weekly classes.

How often will families meet?

Parents and children will come together to at Epiphany one Wednesday evening a month and children will attend classes weekly.

 

My child will receive First Sacraments this year.

Children in second grade will  be preparing for the sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Eucharist. The formation given during the second grade Family Faith sessions will focus on preparing for these sacraments. In addition to the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd classes, there will be several other meetings, practices, and celebrations throughout the year. Obtain more information on First Sacraments.

What are Parent Enrichment Nights?

I would like to be a catechist.

Wonderful! To help with the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Atrium for children age 3 – grade 2 contact Mary Minor, mminor@epiphanymn.org. To be a Catechist in grades 3-6, contact Dana Butler, dbutler@epiphanymn.org.

 

I don't have children at home but want to attend a PEN.

Every adult is welcome to hear the dynamic speakers and to grow in community on Family Faith nights. While topics will be tailored toward those with children, others may want to come to glean ideas of how to share the faith with grandchildren or Godchildren.  Come join us!

I want to volunteer.

Thank you for you interest in wanting to help our Family Faith program to flourish. We will have plenty of volunteer opportunities for our parishioners. Here are some of the ways you can help: Assistant (pre-k-grade 2) Catechist (grades 3-6), Substitute Catechist, Hall Monitor, Office Volunteer, and Small Group Leader for Parents.

Start volunteering at Epiphany.
