"Education in the faith by the parents should begin in the child's earliest years. This happens when family members help one another to grow in faith by the witness of a Christian life in keeping with the Gospel. Family catechesis precedes, accompanies, and enriches other forms of instruction in the faith. Parents have the mission of teaching their children to pray and to discover their vocation as children of God. The parish is the Eucharistic community and the heart of the liturgical life of Christian families; it is a privileged place for the catechesis of children and parents." Catechism of the Catholic Church #2226. 

Our mission is to help you as parents/guardians to nurture and foster growth in the Catholic faith of your children.  This is accomplished with help from Catechists/volunteers of our Parish who give of their time and talents. At Peace of Christ Parish, the family faith formation program for children in Grades PreK ( age 4) through 5 exists to assist families in the faith growth and development of their children.

Our classes meet weekly, on Sundays, 11am-Noon at St. Ambrose Academy. We also meet five Sundays throughout the year for family/intergenerational gatherings. 

First faith formation classes begin with a parent/child informational meeting Sunday, September 15th, 11am-Noon, Dailey Hall @ St. Ambrose Academy.  

Registration materials for these programs-as well as volunteer applications- may be found at all worship sites, at the parish office, or by contacting Melissa Mang, Director of Catechetical Programs and Youth Ministry at (585) 288-5000, ext. 121 or  melissa.mang@dor.org.
