As you are aware, Faith Formation here at St. Joseph's is a family affair, where parents are directly involved in passing on the faith. We offer monthly sessions with a parent or other key adult in attendance, workshops, learning centers and various other opportunities. These opportunities for learning and growth have been open to not only our children but our entire parish as well. This is a proven way to help you as parents grow in your faith along with your children. The emphasis is to encourage and enable more parents to pass on their faith to their children and extended family who may be seeking a deeper faith. Our Church tells us that parents are the primary teachers of their children. Therefore offering opportunities for parents as well as students would help in achieving this.
As your pastor, I am grateful the parish has embraced this approach. Your support is critical in your child’s development as well as your family and our parish. Please be assured that we as a staff are doing everything we can to help you in your vocation as parents of the children God the Father has entrusted to you. If you have any questions, please call the office for Brenda Joubert at 667-6344. As we continue to follow the Lord, may we continue to pray for each other.
