Together in Faith! The Faith Formation Office would like to extend a special invitation to St. Francis of Assisi School families to join us for Together in Faith.  Together in Faith is a new program offering an abundance of options for each member of the household.  There is something for everyone! 

Parents have the opportunity to connect with others in faith and fellowship during Live from Assisi Adult Edition, view weekly Gospel Reflections in The Good News, and gain support in comfortably and confidently embracing their role as their child’s most important faith formation teacher. 

Children participate in Live from Assisi Home Edition with their families, and then engage in activities providing further spiritual growth and development.  There are child-friendly Gospel Readings and Reflections, a prayer table kit, a variety of prayer and worship activities, including Live from Assisi Worship Hour and Music with Ms. Emmy and Father Mark, featured service projects, Spotify playlists, saintly connections, and group activities for middle schoolers, including social nights. 

For more information and to register for Together in Faith, call the Faith Formation Office at 515-440-1030 or visit http://saintfrancischurch.org/engage/programs-by-pillar/formation/2020-21-faith-formation-registration/
