Designing Faith formation with a new generation 

Designing Faith Formation with a New Generation of Children and their Parents

Tuesday, April 30, 2019, 9AM - 3PM

St. Mark Catholic Church/Plano

Great Hall/Parish Center, 1105 W. 15th St.

Gathering/Morning Hospitality begins at 9:00 am

Innovation Lab begins at 9:30 am

Join us for a one-day “Designing Faith Formation Workshop” to guide parish teams in creating new or enhanced programming with children that integrates intergenerational relationships and faith experiences, parent faith formation, and peer group faith formation; and that incorporates digital methods and approaches into faith formation with the new generation.

All participating parishes will have access to online Tools and Resources to support design work, and Networking among congregations to share projects and ideas.

Who might you invite as part of your parish team?

We recognize that parents and the family are the most powerful influence for virtually every child outcome – personal, academic, social, and spiritual-religious; and that parents are the most important influence on the social and religious lives of their children. For your team, it would be helpful to include people from your current catechetical team, such as your *pastor*, worship director, youth minister, etc., as well as catechists, parents and grandparents.Your parish is filled with talented, faithful people so don’t forget to include people that are not already involved.

*The Department of Catechetical Services is inviting all Pastors to attend a special session on Family Catechesis for Pastors only on May 1st from Noon-2:30pm at Holy Trinity Parish.  Lunch will be provided and then Denise Utter of Vibrant Faith will give a brief presentation. Please RSVP to Maria at or 214-379-2847 to confirm your attendance. 

 

Although there is no charge for the Innovation Lab, we ask that each person attending purchase the book: Faith Formation with a New Generation

Note:  The book is only available in English so do not purchase for Spanish language attendees.  All handouts at the workshop will be available in English and Spanish.

All participating parishes will have access to online Tools and Resources to support design work, and Networking among congregations to share projects and ideas.
