“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
Matt 16: 19-20
The Great Commission
“The Great Commission” is often the shorthand used to refer to the core mission of the Church, which is the conversion and discipling of the entire world. This mission begins in the home, it begins with our children.
St Mary of the Knobs recognizes and embraces the sacred duty of the Church to catechize our youth, and our Catechist Team is committed to creating a safe, fun, and orthodox environment for your child to experience the Truth and Beauty of the Catholic Church. However, parents are the single greatest influencer on the spiritual development of their children and the most robust FF program will fall flat if unsupported by a vibrant and tangible life of faith in the home.
In light of the need for a holistic partnership we ask that as we commit to providing the best FF program possible that you commit to engaging with the range of resources we are preparing for Discipleship. Raising children is hard, raising them in the Faith is nearly impossible without the help and support of your parish; We want to provide that support. When your children are in class we will have talks and workshops available for you, when they receive handouts we will have reading recommendations and videos for you. Together we can give our children the most priceless gift imaginable, the most important thing they will ever receive in this life: a true relationship with Jesus Christ.
The number one indicator for whether a child will continue in the Faith is if they have spiritual discussions in the home.
Veni Sancte Spiritus
This year we are returning to a fully in person Faith Formation program.
Your family must register prior to attending any session. We must provide the safest environment for our children and catechists. If you decide to join sessions, we must know prior to you attending. We are unable to take your registration when you show up for the session like we have in the past. Please register or contact Garrek Harris so we are able to provide a safe environment for all.
