Partnering with Families  –  According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, (# 2223 - 26) parents are the primary educators of their children in the faith. We believe that by sending young people to St. Andrew’s Sunday morning Christian Formation program, families are entering into a partnership with us.   When you sign your child up for sports, you make a commitment to the coach to do whatever it takes for your child to develop and grow.  You are making a similar commitment when you send your child to religious instruction in the Parish.
 
As St. Andrew’s catechists, we promise to:

  • Instruct your child in their Catholic Christian faith.
  • Provide the best instructional and formational experience we can.
  • Pray with your children, and for your children.
  • Encourage participation in the sacraments.
  • Promote the faith community of St. Andrew’s and positive ways to contribute to it.
  • Share information with families that will benefit their child’s faith formation.
  • Provide a safe environment for all children.
  • Take good care of your child.

 
As parents, you promise to:

  • Raise your children in a Catholic home, where faith is lived and God is loved.
  • Help your children practice their faith at home, especially the practice of prayer and worship.
  • Have your child attend and involve themselves fully in Sunday Mass.
  • Have your child participate in the sacraments.
  • Promote the faith community of St. Andrew’s and positive ways to contribute to it.
  • Support the catechetical programs at St. Andrew’s.
  • Encourage good attendance by bringing your child to class every Sunday.
