According to the National Directory of Catechesis, “Parents are the most influential agents of catechesis for their children. They have a unique responsibility for the education of their children; they are the first educators, or catechists”. The aim of St. John the Evangelist Faith Formation program is to uphold the Church’s promise “to help parents foster their child’s faith.” (National Directory of Catechesis)
