Faith Formation


The Parish of Christ the King is honored to welcome you to Children’s Faith Formation! Our Catechists have been trained according to the norms of the Diocese of Charlotte. They are exceptionally dedicated in teaching the Catholic faith to our children, and to be kind and friendly to your children. Though we are small in number, you will find that we are a family of learning and growing together. It is the Church’s task to assist you, the parents, in your role as chief educators of your children in the Faith. We will do everything we can in class to start them on the right path to being good faithful Catholics, and we will count on you to support us and give your children the proper example at home. After all, it is your example they will remember the most! If you have any suggestions for this Faith Formation Program, or if your children need special help, or if you like to volunteer, kindly let us know: Working together will ensure that your children have the best possible start in life!

EXPECTATIONS OF PARENTS FOR FAITH FORMATION

1. Attend Sunday Mass and actively participate in Mass responses with your child.
2. Celebrate the Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation (“go to Confession”); take the whole family.
3. Make it a family priority for your son/daughter to attend faith formation classes.
4. Help your child experience and observe the work of parish lay ministers and community volunteers.
5. Involve your child/family in some form of shared parish/community service.
6. Celebrate holy days, holidays, birthdays, and anniversaries of sacraments, etc. in your home with
special decorations, family traditions, and rituals that express your Christian beliefs.
7. Read/tell Bible stories and listen to your child share these stories in his/her own words. Make sure your
child has a Catholic Bible of his/her own.
8. Provide a rosary to your child. If the rosary is not blessed, let your child be present if possible when a
priest or deacon blesses the rosary. Pray at least one decade of the Rosary with your child each week.
(Pray the Rosary on a different day of the week each week so your child will begin to associate the
mysteries of the Rosary with their proper day: Joyful Mysteries—Monday and Saturday, Sorrowful
Mysteries—Tuesday and Friday, Luminous Mysteries—Thursday, and Glorious Mysteries—Sunday and
Wednesday.)
9. Create special prayer times.
10. Bless your child—saying a short prayer while tracing the Sign of the Cross on his/her head.
