Parents are the first teachers of the faith and should begin teaching their children in the earliest years. Parents have the mission of teaching their children to pray and to discover their vocation as children of God. The parish is the Eucharistic community and the heart of the liturgical life of Christian families. Faith Formation at St. Matthew’s Church begins in Kindergarten and continues through adulthood.
