FAITH FORMATION HOME LESSON

Dear Mater Dolorosa Faith Formation families,

It is important for us to partner together to continue your child's faith journey for the remainder of this faith formation year. Please keep Tuesday evenings from 5:45 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. for Levels 1 to 5 or 7:00 p.m. to 8:15 p.m. for Level 6, Confirmation 1 and Confirmation 2 in your weekly routine. For the next 8 weeks make it a "family faith formation evening". We encourage you to involve the whole family if possible.

If you have any questions or any difficulty please email cff@mdssf.org or 650-583-4131 x 2.
