A hybrid, family-focused approach to faith formation

OVERVIEW

Families Forming Disciples is a hybrid, family-focused, thematic-activity approach where groups of families meet with catechists online and/or in-person to encounter the Lord together and to encourage each other to live as the Domestic Church in and through their home and family life.

The Office of Formation and Discipleship is offering Families Forming Disciples as a specific way to assist parish catechetical leaders, catechists, and parents/families in the 2020-2021 faith formation year.  By seeking to engage families in renewed ways, the hope is that the experiences and learning over this year will help all of us in taking a next step to advance family evangelization and faith formation.   

More Information for leaders is available on Archatl.com

LESSON SAMPLES

Given the unprecedented time in which we are living, the Office of Formation & Discipleship is providing 27 weeks of sample lessons for catechists to consider integrating in their faith formation curriculum. 

The lessons are intended to be used either virtually or in person and can be adapted and changed as necessary.  

The ultimate goal of the lessons are to encourage families to pray together and grow together as disciples.
