Using "Forming Disciples" (the diocesan faith formation curriculum) as a road map for program planning across parish ministries will easily align thematic learning across ages and highlight many liturgical and community events already on the calendar. Being intentional about planning is important.
To help to begin to lay out an integrated curriculum plan that connects with parish / liturgical / civil calendars , we have created a 2019-2020 Forming Disciples Planning Calendar that you can use in the upcoming year. Add in your parish events and see what a difference it can make when everyone is focused on the same themes in catechetical sessions and events.
Here is a short video which may make it easier to locate things in the curriculum to align with parish and liturgical events.
Service and Theological Reflection
Volunteering is important, and our faith calls us to serve our community, but equally as essential is reflecting on service experience through the eyes of faith. We are pleased to share this resource guide that can assist you as you incorporate guided reflection into your service experiences with children, teens and families.
REMEMBER we are here to assist you and your team in laying out a plan the works for YOUR parish, so email or call 716-547-5501.
