Family Intergenerational Religious Education

Family Faith Formation has been a part of Risen Savior for over a decade!  Through the family-centered FIRE program, parents and children of all ages learn and grow in our faith in the same classroom, at the same time.

Once a month, registered families meet in the Marian Center to share a potluck meal and participate in large and small group activities.  All ages participate in learning experiences together that are interactive and concept-based.  Everyone participates at their own developmental level, and learning occurs through role play, dialogue, creative experiences, scripture and doctrine. Class lessons continue at home in a manner that connects faith with everyday life.  Lessons are completed at home and reviewed during the following meeting.  The curriculum gives children a tangible experience of being church, while equipping older students and adults with the theology and history of our faith.  In addition, we use age-specific, liturgy-based materials to introduce children to the catechism of our faith and connect with the weekly Mass.

Our 2015-16 year begins September 20 with monthly meetings through May.  It is a great time to join Family Faith Formation!  The deadline for registration is August 1, 2016.  We look forward to welcoming you to our Family Faith Formation community!
