Children's Faith Development

My dear friends in Christ Jesus,

It is the parent's responsibility and obligation to teach their children their faith.
At St. Andrew the Apostle church community we can support this process, and we do this in several different ways.

Naturally a child will learn from example and so the parent's must follow the Church's teachings at home and in public. 
Attending weekly Mass services is therfore a must. Children attending the 11 am Mass may attend the Children's Liturgy program.

Our parish offers several different literary sources that can be borrowed and used at home. 

An excellent starting point for young children working toward their Firts Holy Communion is the following: "My First Catechism"

In addition, I am always open to see you and discuss with you any questions or concerns you may have about your child's faith development.


God Bless,
