Children & Youth

Youth@StPhilipFranklin.com

Religious education for our children pre-school through high school. Faith formation is a life-long activity. It is important that parents and families recognize the vital role they play in the faith formation of our youth. Pope John Paul II’s “Familiaris Consortio” teaches that the family is the core of all society for the family teaches one to the meaning of love, which is self-giving. That love will spiral out, first, to other members of one’s own family, then to other families, then to society at large. The family is the vital core of society and its school of social virtue.
