    Ways Parents Can Help Strengthen The Foundation of Religious Education

    1. Plan to be in Church prior to the beginning of Sunday School, which begins at 9:45 am.

    2. Be consistent.  Attend Church regularly.

    3. Practice the faith at home, observe fast days and schedule family prayer time. Children are great imitators; what they see you do, you will see them do.

    4. Be realistic in setting your goals as you grow in the Faith.  God will always provide more than you will ever need, but you need to be willing and ready to be called and to follow Him in every aspect of your life.

    5. Do not feel alone, or overwhelmed, but turn to Him in prayer at all times.  Stand Firm in Holy Tradition and Be Well In Faith.
