Wednesday Family Faith Formation

 Daily Masses have resumed and Sunday masses are starting – find out more on the Parish News page! During this time, Sacred Heart will provide a live stream of Sunday Mass, which can be viewed here.  Know that the Franciscan Friars keep you all in prayer. Be well. Be smart. Be holy

Wednesday Family Faith has concluded for this season. Plans are being made for the Autumn of 2020. Stay tuned!

Sacred Heart offers a non-traditional approach to assist parents in forming the faith of their children. “Family Faith Formation” is  exactly what it says – families sharing and growing in faith. This process consists of:

  • Gathering together in a large group setting for opening prayer and introduction of the theme, and then breaking into smaller groups.
  • Using the the smaller group format for rotating through three different “stations,” while keeping the family together
  • Reflecting on the Sunday Scripture, including participating in a variety of learning techniques to engage all of the members of the family, such as “Liturgy Jeopardy,” crafts, Bible Bingo, faith sharing, and more.

Sessions are bi-weekly, September through May, from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at the North Campus.
