St. John’s CREED department would like to offer more opportunities for adults to broaden their understanding of the Catholic faith in the most accessible way.

We will begin this initiative by offering a program called “Family of Faith” published by The Sophia Institute this fall.

“Family of Faith” is designed to bring the four pillars of the Catholic Catechism to families which are Pillar 1: The Profession of Faith-What we believe, Pillar 2: The Celebration of the Christian Mystery-How we worship, Pillar 3: Our Life in Christ-How we live our lives as Christians & Pillar 4: Christian Prayer-How we pray.

“Family of Faith” will be a monthly classroom experience for adults run in conjunction with our standard CREED classes from 9:00-10:15 a.m. on Sunday mornings & one additional meeting of both adults and children in a social scenario which provides an opportunity for Catholic families to interact & hopefully build lasting friendships.

The monthly classes offer understanding of our Catechism in parts and offer parents and adults tangible solutions and suggestions on how to live your family life as practicing Catholics.

This once a month classroom experience offers a parent guide & workbook for the children of your family to truly assist the parent in being a child’s first Catechist at home. By doing this we hope to assist families in truly living out the call of St. John Paul II to turn our homes into a “domestic church.” Cost will be costs to cover the materials.
