Faith Formation Resources

Families are the heart of Faith Formation!

Event Weeks:  One week each month, Faith Formation sessions are set aside to celebrate your family’s faith life.  Each month’s event will center around the different celebrations of the liturgical year.  It is our intention that parents attend with their families.

Before Jesus went to the cross, He prayed…

Friendship

The Church is not a “what”, but a “who”

 

Reflect…

  • Pick one of the Scripture quotes that speaks to you and take a minute to really think about it.

Mark 8; 34 – He summoned the crowd with his disciples and said to them, “Whoever
wishes to come after me must deny himself, take up his cross and follow me.”

Mark 10; 21 – Jesus, looking at him, loved him and said to him, “You are lacking in one thing. Go sell what you have, and give to the poor and you will have treasure in heaven.

Luke 14:27 – Whoever does not carry his cross and come after me cannot be my disciple.

Luke 23:26 – As they led him away they took hold of a certain Simon, a Cyrenian, who was coming in from the country; and after laying the cross on him, they made him carry it behind Jesus.

John 19:25 – Standing by the cross of Jesus were his mother and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas and Mary of Magdala.

1 Cor. 1:18 – The message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
