Things to remember

  • Nothing can separate us from the love of God. You and your family are precious to Him.

  • Nothing can replace you and your witness of faith in the lives of your children.

  • When you presented your child(ren) for Baptism, you made a promise to God and the whole church that you would educate your children in the faith. The Church was founded by Jesus Christ and is committed to helping you in this task.  You are not alone! 

  • The time you invest in helping to develop your child’s faith will make an eternal difference in his or her life and yours!

  • By virtue of the commitment you made at your child’s Baptism and the reality we are now faced with – you are officially a member of the faith formation team! 

  • Sophia Institute for Teachers is here to help you! Please contact us if you have any difficulties!
