CREDO Faith Formation
CREDO in Latin means "I Believe"
Essential Pillars of CREDO:
- The home is the most important place for the seed of faith to take root.
- Faith formation classes always assist and never replace the influence of the family on the young person’s faith.
- Our students must, by God’s grace, come to love our Lord Jesus and to love His Holy Catholic Church.
- Eternal life in heaven is our final goal in life.
The series used in our parish is Faith and Life published by Ignatius Press. Catechesis corresponds to the four pillars of the Catechism, covering Catholic doctrine, morality, sacraments, and prayer. Faith and Life is approved by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops and conforms with the Vatican’s General Directory for Catechesis. To learn more about the lessons, visit www.faithandlifeseries.com
High School Grades 9-12:
Lessons are from the Didache Series published by the Midwest Theological Forum. The lessons will draw from the Catechism of the Catholic Church, Sacred Scripture, the lives of the saints, and the Doctors and Fathers of the Church. The Didache series is approved by the USCCB and is in conformity with the Catechism of the Catholic Church. For downloadable samples and more information, go to: www.highschoolseries.com
Students in Grades 1-2 are given a Bible Story Book. Students in Grades 3-4 use The New Catholic Answer’s Bible. Students in Grades 5-12 use The New Catholic Answer’s Bible and Catechism of the Catholic Church.
Copies of all texts used in grades 1-12 are available for parent/guardian review at the Faith Formation center. Please contact the Faith Formation Coordinator.
Supplemental Curriculum Elements:
All classes attend Eucharistic Adoration each week. The program integrates Saints for each month, Virtues for Life: A Call to Holiness, a Spiritual Bouquet program for Catholic Church leaders and for those in religious life, and special prayers/activities pertinent to the holy liturgical seasons of Advent, Christmas, Lent and Easter.
