Annunciation Department of Family Faith Formation

The Family Faith Formation Program at Annunciation exists for the purpose of spreading the Good News of Christ to its students and to their families. The catechists are committed to assisting families in the beautiful task of molding young disciples in the faith.

Annunciation Vision Statement for Faith Formation

  • Annunciation Parish envisions that every child in the parish is enrolled and actively participates in faith formation.

  • The parish faith community built on love, hope, prayerfulness, hospitality and service, assists families in the education of children in the Judeo-Christian Tradition.

  • Catechists and parents, nurtured and supported by the community, cultivate the Catholic faith in our children.

  • Respect for the humanity of all individuals is an uncompromised value.

  • Through faith formation, ethical, compassionate, service-oriented future leaders of our Catholic community are created.
