Parents want what is best for their children including a healthy relationship with Christ. Recent data indicate that the average age a person disassociates from the Catholic Faith is at Age 13. Passing on the faith can be challenging for many reasons. Everyone seems to have busy lives. This event is designed for Parents to take a brief time to learn and share practical ways to engage their children and youth in building a strong faith life equipping them for a healthy faith life into the future. This event will take place at St. Paul’s Catholic Church in St. Cloud.
