Catholic Faith Formation

St. Mel Catholic Faith Formation

 

The Catechism of the Catholic Church states:

It is intrinsic to faith that a believer desires to know better the One in whom he has put his faith and to understand better what He has revealed; a more  penetrating knowledge will in turn call for them a greater faith increasingly set afire by love. (ccc 158:33)

Keeping this in mind, the Catholic Faith Formation program, provides a curriculum that begins in the 1st grade and continues through the 8th grade.  The curriculum provides fundamental knowledge of: 

  • Salvation History

  • Precepts of the Church                                       

  • Doctrine

  • Saints

  • Sacraments

  • Living the Christian Life in Our World

  • Defending and Upholding Catholic Truths

We also strive to instill in our students a LOVE of God the Father, Christ the Son, and the Holy Spirit our Advocate; a LOVE of neighbor and stranger; and a LOVE of Holy Mother Church.  We know that without an active LOVE we can not submit our lives to God's plan for us.
