Family Faith Formation
"Parents are the principal and first educators of their children. [...] The Christian home is the place where children receive the first proclamation of the faith. For this reason the family home is rightly called 'the domestic church,' a community of grace and prayer,
a school of human virtues and of Christian charity,"
(Catechism of the Catholic Church §1653, 1666).
At Assumption, we partner with parents so our homes grow as the 'domestic churches' they're called to be.
We are excited to introduce you to a new ministry here at Assumption called Hook & Net Family Ministry! Our Mission is to grow in Christ and to empower the family for a lifetime of living as Eucharistic Apostles through Church teaching and the communal life, the sacraments and prayer, all through the patronage of Mother Mary.
Hook & Net is the primary program for formation in the life of supernatural faith and Catholic doctrine and life at Assumption for children pre-K through 12th grade. It is also Assumption’s preferred preparatory program for First Reconciliation, Confirmation, and the Eucharist under the Restored Order of the Sacraments of Initiation which entails two years of Sacramental Preparation for First Reconciliation, Confirmation, and First Communion under the Restored Order guidelines.
We meet on 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month with the entire family including the parents (Sept 15- April 20) for Daily Mass, a meal and breakout into grade levels (K-12 grade) for programming and back together for prayer. Our program is accepting registrations for parishioners only after Masses and in the office through September 13. Contact Megan for more details.
