‘Mini’ Faith Formation @ Saint Cabrini | 2021-2022 School Year

As Christians, we believe the Faith Formation begins at home with mother and father teaching the ways of our faith through prayerful reflections, study, and emulation of our virtues. In the Sacrament of Baptism, parents and Godparents alike commit before God, His Church, and each other to bring the child up to keep God’s commandments as Christ taught us, by loving God and our neighbor.

To support this commitment, we are blessed to introduce our ‘Mini’ Faith Formation Program at Saint Cabrini Catholic Church for the 2021-2022 School Year. This year we have been very fortunate to have Dr. Joseph Domingues coordinating this new Ministry for our parish. Below you will find a bit more information about Dr. Joe and our program for the year ahead.

You have asked to have your child baptized. In doing so you are accepting the
responsibility of training him (her) in the practice of the faith. It will be your duty to
bring him (her) up to keep God’s commandments as Christ taught us, by loving God
and our neighbor. Do you clearly understand what you are undertaking?
