What does our program look like?

 

What is Family of Faith?

  •  a family catechesis (pronounced kat-eh-kee-sis) program at St. Bartholomew Catholic Church.
  • an alternative to traditional CCD where the parents meet monthly to learn more about and explore their faith.
  • where parents transmit the faith to their children at home with the resources provided.
  • an emphasis on building community within the church through community gatherings outside of the liturgy.
