St Mark is moving to a family catechesis model, where parents and children will attend together at the parish, once a month. At the monthly session, you will be given the information and materials that you will need to teach that month’s lesson at home.
We understand that family life is busy with many activities that compete for time and attention. The Family Catechesis model, however, will give you easy and practical tools to integrate our beautiful Catholic faith into the rhythm of daily life and in your domestic church at home. Family catechesis will be “a school for the Lord’s service,” not just learning about the faith, but also how to live it out.
This paradigm shift may seem overwhelming at first, but take heart in this opportunity to share and grow in the faith with your children! Each lesson comes with activities that are appropriate for children of various ages; you’ll simply choose the ones that are right for your family.
Attached is a list of answers to questions you may be asking or thinking regarding the family catechesis model.
