ST. PIUS X CATHOLIC CHURCH
FAMILIES IN FAITH – FAITH FORMATION PROGRAM
Come, share in the joy! There is GREAT joy in families coming together to learn about their faith and live it out as the Body of Christ!
We strive to live as families in faith, joining together as a parish family in faith. Every member of St. Pius X parish is included regardless of age, family structure, vocation, or choice of school system. All members possess different gifts and talents; all intended to build up the Body of Christ. As a community we are responsible for passing on our faith to the infants, children and youth of our parish. That means we must be continuously forming and growing in our faith, so that we possess a living faith to pass on to future generations. Our U.S. Bishops have spoken to this more than once. The following quote from their 1999 document Our Hearts Were Burning Within Us, paragraphs #2-5, explains their challenge and expectation of our faith community very well. (You can obtain a copy of the document in its entirety through our parish office or byclicking here.)
FAMILY AS DOMESTIC CHURCH
Your Family . . . . . who are you in the Church? Who are you in the eyes of Jesus? What does the Church expect of my family? What does it mean for my family to be DOMESTIC CHURCH? Does it mean we have to be perfect? How does the Catholic Church offer my family support and guidance?
SO . . . . . On THAT Note . . . . . We want YOU, your family AND your friends to join us —
- to love and support each other on our journey to Christ,
- to learn about our Catholic faith, the Bible, and the life of Jesus,
- to live our faith in action and service to God’s people!!
