Family Faith Formation
Welcome to the Peace of Christ Family Faith Program!
Preschool through Fifth Grade. Please note: all classes meet at St. James School, 130 Brett Rd., Rochester, NY 14609. The last family gathering date is 4/26/17. Visit this link for a complete schedule.
“A comprehensive parish-based catechesis harmonizes the catechesis of adults, families, parents, youth, children in the parish catechetical program and Catholic school, children in the parish catechumenate, and small Christian communities” (National Directory for Catechesis, 61).
At Peace of Christ Parish, we offer a variety of Christian formation and spiritual growth opportunities for people of all ages. This page describes our Family Faith Program, which is designed for busy families whose children are currently attending public schools in grades PreK-5. The Diocese of Rochester requires children to attend 30 hours of catechesis yearly.
We use Our Sunday Visitor's Allelu! with our littlest disciples, ages 3-6. Visit this link to see a video of this engaging Early Childhood faith program your children will love and remember!
For children in grades Kindergarten through 5th grade, we use Our Sunday Visitor's Alive in Christ curriculum. To learn more about this innovative faith program, visit this link. Children have fun learning and singing songs that reinforce specific concept areas explored during their class time. Most importantly, we provide families with opportunities to build relationships when they gather together during special times throughout the liturgical season for food, faith sharing and fun.
Please check back in April 2017 for our registration materials and schedule. Then, simply download, complete and return the registration form with fee(s) to our parish office: Peace of Christ Parish, 25 Empire Blvd., Rochester, NY 14609. For more information, contact Melissa Mang, Director of Catechetical Programs and Youth Ministry at firstname.lastname@example.org or 288-5000, ext. 121. We look forward to hearing from you!
Special thanks to our Junior High Youth Group and Catechists from our Family Faith Program for assisting with our first parish Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 8th at St. James School this year.
Pictured below are some of our little "egg hunters" who were happy to leave with full baskets:
