The Church reminds us that parents are the primary educators of their children’s faith. To that end, at St. Monica we are committed to walking alongside parents to provide tools and resources to help guide children and family’s experience in finding Christ in the everyday.

 

One such resource is our Parent Faith@Home series which meets during the school year 1–2 Sundays a month after the 9:30 a.m. Mass to reflect, discuss and listen to ideas of how to bring “God talk” into your daily life. This time is concurrent with our religious education program from ages 3 through grade 8.

 

All parents regardless of the age of your children are welcome and encouraged to attend and there is no cost—just show up!

In these sessions, we will offer parents practical ways and a vision of developing a continual growing faith in and as family through:

  • Prayer
  • Exploring the holy and sacred moments in family life
  • Enjoying COMMUNITY and CONNECTION
  • Sharing IDEAS and INSPIRATION around devotional practices
  • CELEBRATING our strengths, efforts, and Christian values
  • Learning evidence-based TOOLS and STRATEGIES to create desired changes
