 What is Family Faith Formation?

Family Faith Formation is a Catholic religious education model that is based on the principal that “Parents are the primary educators in the Faith” (General Directory for Catechesis GDC) (255). The key to Family Faith Formation is parents’ involvement with their children as they learn and grow in faith. Family catechesis is proven to be the surest way for kids to learn the Faith in a way that will stick!
