Since March of last year, it’s been an all-hands-on-deck approach for faith formation leaders at Ascension Roman Catholic Church.
After many months of being apart, students from Christ the King’s faith formation program, along with their parents and catechists, reunited at Mass June 6 to mark a “bittersweet” end of the year.
The 60 students enrolled in Christ the King’s faith formation program, as well as their parents and catechists, have become more immersed with their Catholic faith through both remote learning and in-person meetings.
When schools went remote last spring, religious education programs also pivoted to continue teaching children about the Catholic faith and sacraments.
A major gathering of ecclesial heavy hitters focusing on the future of the priesthood concluded with a call for a reimagining of priestly formation – one that incorporates the laity and women in the process and better reflects the racial and cultural diversity within the U.S. Church.
The end of the liturgical calendar has become an opportunity for new beginnings at Christ the King, Springfield Gardens.
