Youth Formation

Information for Parents – Christian Formation 2020-2021

How joyful that your youth will continue or start their formation and growth in the faith. This year the parents at home (the domestic church) will play a more active role. The sessions are online (Zoom) and/or led by the parents.

The first Sunday of the month the catechists will lead a session by Zoom at 4pm (for about 1 hour); previously to the beginning of the catechetical year each family receives materials that will be used at home (pending upon registration and paying the fees, although there is assistance with the fees if needed). The rest of the weeks, you, the parents will lead the sessions using the simple format we have given you and following the instruction in the parents’ guides online.

The formation of the children, youth and adults of St. Gerard Parish in the Catholic Faith is a vital and important ministry.

Jesus was sent to reveal the deepest truth about God. He then commissioned His Church to do the same:  to teach about God, and to foster love of God and one another.
