Welcome

To Our Lady of Hope Family Faith Formation

We are so happy you are joining us in our new Family Faith Formation gatherings. We know that nothing and no one can replace the influence and example of parents and grandparents to the spiritual life of a child. Our Family Faith Formation classes embrace this and help us grow in faith together.

 5:30 Dinner available from our Parish family. Come early for food and fellowship before our Family Faith sessions begin. Food will be provided by our generous parishioners and our generous cooks!

 We will begin our gatherings on Monday, October 4th at 6:00 PM in the Fellowship Hall with parents and children together. Then we will break-out into sessions with children going in the classrooms according to their age or for Sacraments. Parents will stay in the Fellowship Hall for meaningful family faith topics.  We will end together in the Fellowship Hall for conclusion and prayer. 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM.

5:30 dinner – 6:00 Opening Prayer – 6:15 Break out into groups – 7:15 Meet together for ending prayer.
