Religious education can help us grow in faith, at any age. Faith development happens outside of our faith communities, too, especially at home. Parents and caregivers are our children’s primary religious educators, and not only because we give explanations and advice. Every day, we model attitudes toward faith, meaning, and purpose that children will notice and copy.
At CVUUS, we support one another to discover and rediscover a seeking, active faith in the context of our family lives.
