Generations of Faith

Generations of Faith (GoF) is our core formation program and is intergenerational. This is because here at Good Shepherd we see Christian Formation as an ongoing, life-long process. A living faith is always growing and changing as we experience God and interact with one another. Sessions run once a month and follow both of our weekend Masses. The goal of Generations of Faith is to help all parish members to engage the presence of Christ in the Eucharist and to embrace the mission to which we are called and for which we are sent forth each week.

Growing Faith

Recognizing that adults bring a basic instruction in the faith and a lived experience of the practice of the faith they can more easily enter into faith sharing conversations than most children. In order to build up the knowledge base of the children of the parish we include a monthly session for children called Growing Faith. This program offers a systematic presentation of the core of the Catholic faith for children K4 through 11th Grade. The groups are divided by developmental levels to explore who we are, what we teach, and what we do as a Catholic community. All children in Generations of Faith are automatically enrolled in Growing Faith, no additional registration or payment is needed.
