Families Sharing at Home

Families Sharing at Home

Families Sharing Faith is an at home program where 3 families come together as a small group.  They meet 8 times during the school year to complete activities together (see below).  The days and times for these gatherings are set by the group and occur between September and April.

In addition to these gatherings each family completes age appropriate weekly lessons as well as a simple monthly family activity.  The group gatherings, weekly lessons, and family activities, together complete the diocesan curriculum directives.  

This program is recommended for families who are unavailable for Sunday morning gatherings due to sprots, family custody situations, or work commitments.
