Children's Formation

Children's Formation

Education of children and young people is such an important task in forming them as free and responsible human beings. It affirms their dignity as an inalienable gift that flows from our original creation as children made in the image and likeness

of God. And because education truly forms human beings, it is especially the duty and responsibility of the Church, who is called to serve mankind from the heart of God and in such a way that no other institution can. – Pope Francis

 

For nearly 150 years, the Church has unequivocally taught that parents have the right and responsibility to serve as the primary educators of their children. To assist them in this sacred duty, the Church of the Holy Spirit offers children’s formation programs including Evening Religious Education, Vacation Bible School, Altar Server training and other special programs.
