3 Year Old - 5th Grade Family Faith Formation  

Family Faith Formation is an exciting opportunity to encounter God in your homes and grow your faith as a family. We gather once a month at Ascension for a family lesson, and for the remaining 3 weeks, parents can either share the remaining lessons at home or enroll their child(ren) in class on Wednesdays (in addition to the Family lesson, not instead of it). We can also offer materials for 3- and 4-year olds!
