FF FAQs – A DRE asks about transitioning to Family Formation

Would you recommend offering both a traditional CCD program and Family Formation to the families in our parish?

Normally, we recommend offering only one program so as to use the available resources in your parish most effectively. In making the transition, some parishes have found it effective to choose a small number of committed families to use Family Formation on a pilot-program basis for a year. The following year, these families are able to work with the priest/DRE as advocates of Family Formation, giving testimony to its effectiveness to the other parents in their parish.
