FAITH FORMATION

The religious education process for the Diocese of Erie is organized first by grade level, and then within each grade level there are several sections which outline important parts of the whole. Each grade level identifies the overall goal that each grade hopes to achieve. This is significant and important. All of the objectives that are assembled in the various sections of the curriculum are organized to achieve this goal.

GROWING IN
OUR FAITH

Our Catholic faith comprises what we believe and how we live that belief. For 2,000 years, this Catholic faith has been handed down from one generation to next, starting with Jesus Christ passing the faith to the Twelve Apostles. In our own lives, we may receive that faith from our parents, from friends, or even a stranger we meet.

 

Living as a Catholic includes many wonderful beliefs, practices, and devotions; too many to catalog here. But we hope to provide you with a brief overview of what we believe and how we live that belief.

 

We hope this resource will be valuable to both interested non-Catholics as well as to those already Catholic who might be looking to deepen the practice of their faith.
