FAMILY FAITH FORMATION
Our Family Faith Formation is now in session! Please be sure to check in each month for our monthly support videos.
Preparing for Christmas in this Season of Advent video!
Below are two support videos; one is instructional for use of The Catechism of the Catholic Church and the other is from our October 2, 2022 meet.
St. Francis is the Saint of the Month for October. We celebrate the feast of St. Francis on October 4.
St. Francis is known for his love of God and God's creation.
Here's a prayer to bless your pet with...
You have done all things wisely; in your goodness you have made us in your image and given us care over other living things.
Reach out with your right hand and grant that these animals may serve our needs and that your bounty in the resources of this life may move us to seek more confidently the goals of eternal life.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Family Faith Formation
Focus on the Parish Family…learning and growing in our Catholic faith together!
Welcome from the Faith Formation Director...
Welcome to our 2022-2023 Faith Formation program year! Starting this fall, we are excited to announce A Family of Faith as Queen of the Apostles Church’s new primary Catechesis program! The goals of this family catechesis program are to encourage and equip parents to live and teach their children the Catholic Faith with teaching provided by our church. Each month, we will provide you all with the knowledge and tools you need to enliven your faith within your home! This is not merely a program to educate children with Catechism memorizing, but is a program to help children develop a deeper relationship with God! It is designed to help all who partake in this program to fall in love with our Lord through everyday faith practices. It is a great opportunity to grow in our faith together as we explore the Profession of Faith this year!
This program is opened to parishioners of all ages and fulfills the religious education requirements for children in elementary and middle school grades! Sacramental preparation for First Sacraments and Confirmation will remain separate and online registration is required to be part of these programs. The deadline to register for the sacramental preparation programs was August 31. More information about sacramental preparation can be found on the First Sacraments and Confirmation pages of this website.
The Family Faith Formation program will operate with meetings scheduled once a month. There will also be quarterly family events scheduled as well. All meetings and events starting October 2 will take place on Sunday mornings beginning with 10:15am coffee and doughnuts in the MAK Family Life Center followed by the meeting or event from 10:30am-11:00am in the Church. Please see the calendar below on this page.
Please be sure to register on the links below if you haven't already registered! For more information, please contact me at 704-825-9600, ext. 1005.
Wishing you God's blessings and peace,
Director of Faith Formation
