Family-Centered Faith Formation
Our Catholic Tradition refers to the family as the “domestic church” - a holy place where parents serve as the “first preachers of the faith to their children” (Lumen Gentium, 11). Faith formation, then, doesn't apply to children alone, but to the entire family!
Ascension ALIVE is a bold, family-centered faith formation program designed to serve the “domestic churches” of Maynard and Sudbury with three essential goals:
1.) To equip families to know God through engaging catechesis.
2.) To empower families to love God through vibrant liturgical worship and community gatherings.
3.) To inspire families to serve God as joyful missionary disciples prepared to evangelize and charitably serve our parish, local communities, and the world at large.
The Ascension ALIVE program was designed with the contemporary family in mind. By leveraging a digital learning platform, catechetical lessons will be available both online and at our newly-renovated Faith Formation classrooms at the Our Lady of Fatima campus.
Catechetical content will come alive at Sunday Mass, during monthly Family Sessions, and through periodic service opportunities, all of which will help families along the path to a better life through Jesus Christ.
