The Elementary Faith Formation program at St. Michael the Archangel Catholic Church is a family centered program that serves children and families from kindergarten through 5th grade. It is family centered in that the goal is to assist parents in the faith formation of their children. At Baptism parents take an oath to raise their children in the faith. The Church tells us that the parents are the first and best teachers of their children in matters of faith. Our role as catechists is to not only teach the children, but support the ongoing faith formation of the parents.
Parish membership is required in order to register for Faith Formation programs here at St. Michael. To become a member of the parish please contact the parish office at 919-468-6100.
All are Welcome!
The National Catholic Partnership on Disability has a series of YouTube videos on Understanding Autism. This is a great resource for parents and catechists working to do the best for children in their care who have been diagnosed with Autism. We also want our St. Michael the Archangel parish congregation to be more conscious of, and be more welcoming to, those with disabilities in their midst.
Autism Awareness: A person with Autism has a medical condition that may impair his or her ability to communicate with others. A person with Autism may have behaviors that appear to be unpredictable or inappropriate. On the surface, it may appear that this person is misbehaving when, in reality, it is his or her own way of dealing with the world.
