The Goal of all catechesis is to help put people in communion with Jesus Christ (CCC, #426) leading them to live as passionate disciples of the Lord. This task of forming our children as disciples is a shared task between parents and Church. Your home serves as part of the "domestic Church" where your children learn from you as parents how to live the faith. We are so grateful that you come to St. Francis de Sales entrusting us to provide you support in this important task. It is a great joy to work with families living out the promise they made at their child's baptism, to bring that child up in the faith (Code of Canon Law 774-2).
Our programs do not replace, but rather support the Catholic Faith already being shared in the home, encourages a communal understanding of the Gospel, and focuses on some age appropriate doctrinal teachings. This is accomplished through scripture, stories, activities, service and the interactions between peers and adults.
