The family that prays together stays together

Ablaze Family Faith Formation begins Sunday, September 13th

Ablaze Family Faith Formation is designed to reinvigorate the family as a place of faith and celebration in the life of the Church. This is for all families of the parish, both School and PSR.


Family Ablaze is structured around two pillars: Faith and Feasting.


Families will receive two bags per month, and families can pick up their bag immediately following any Mass on Sunday.


Here's an example of what your bags will look like each month:

  • Faith
  • 10-15min video on a topic
  • 2 activities to complete throughout the month to reinforce teaching

Family Ablaze is Easy, Adaptable, and Fruitful.


Easy

  • We are going to provide you with simple ways to increase the presence of Jesus and the Church into your home. 


Adaptable

  • One of the best things about this is that these simple actions fit into your everyday life – and become a part of your everyday life. 
  • Ablaze provides ways to open up new and different pathways for God to bless your life in ways you may never have imagined.


Fruitful

Those Home-schooled in Faith Formation are far less likely to leave the Church
