Religious Ed

Family Faith Formation is designed to support you, the parents, in your God-given role as the primary educator of your children.  This is your right and privilege: 

“The ministry of evangelization carried out by Christian parents is original and irreplaceable….The future of humanity passes by way of the family.”Saint John Paul II 

The mission of Family Faith Formation at Holy Trinity Catholic Church is to model our families after the Holy Family, thus creating a Christ-centered home. We honor the parents’ God-given role of raising their children in the Faith and empower them to fulfill this holy privilege and responsibility so that one day we may all partake in the Beatific Vision of the Blessed Trinity.

Lent is a 40 day season of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving that begins on Ash Wednesday and ends at sundown on Holy Thursday. It’s a period of preparation to celebrate the Lord’s Resurrection at Easter.

Lenten Activities

Below are some ways to grow in your faith this Lenten Season!

Sign up for Catholic Madness and learn more about the saints!  This is super easy and fun and you can jump in at any time.  The brackets are on the wall outside the faith formation office.  Did your saint win the Heavenly Crown?

FORMED is a great resource for your family. Father Vander Woude and Bishop Burbidge have paid for your membership. Simply go to FORMED and sign up as a member of a parish. It is FREE! On the FORMED site there are TONS of programming for everyone in the family. It is a great way to redirect your child’s request to watch TV or play video games during Lent.

The AMEN app is a great source for daily Mass readings, Lenten reflections, the rosary, and children’s podcasts. This is a great resource for when you are stuck in the car or taking a walk or waiting to pick up a child from practice. It is free and comes from the Augustine Institute. It is intuitive to use and loaded with content.

The Sacrament of Confession

Jesus, The Good Shepherd

Every baptized Catholic is given access to one of the most consoling Treasures of the Church: The Sacrament of Reconciliation. This Gift of the Church is often underappreciated and underutilized. We welcome all of our brothers and sisters in Christ to learn more about this Sacrament so that all of us can enjoy the peace and healing that only comes with the absolution of our sins. 

Examination of Conscience

Here are some videos to help you prepare:
