FAITH, FAMILY, & FRIENDS

Faith, Family & Friends is the Newman Center’s innovative approach to religious education for all ages. It is adult-oriented, family-centered, and designed for our whole parish community. It offers faith formation for children, individual adults, couples, and families. The aim is for all parishioners and whole households to learn and share their faith and spiritual wisdom together. Members of our parish become better acquainted and become better educated Catholics and lifelong learners of the faith.

There are age-specific classes for pre-K through High School students, intergenerational sessions when all age groups meet and learn together, and adult sessions. Adults have their choice of educational offerings in the topic areas of Scripture study, Catholic Faith, and Family Life each week. Sacramental preparation programs for First Communion and Reconciliation are a part of FF&F.

Because it is family centered, it is mandatory for at least one parent or guardian to attend with their child(ren). Children are never allowed to be dropped off and picked up. Sacramental preparation programs for First Communion and Reconciliation are a part of FF&F.
