BRIDGE Program – Preschool - 7th Grade

BRIDGE is our Faith Formation for families of children in PreK - Grade 7 and we can’t wait to see you!

Holy Family Duxbury’s Faith Formation process is family based. We strive to be a community of families growing in faith together. We are at different places in our spiritual lives, but disciples are formed when we are on the journey together. We want to have adults and children learning about the same topic and help give parents language to share faith with their children. Faith Formation is lifelong!

New for 2024-2025

We have listened to feedback we have received and are making some positive changes to improve the experience for all of our families. The core structure of Bridge will look the same, but changes include some different openings, the overall experience for middle schoolers, and enhanced adult formation experiences. An emphasis will also be placed on the experience of prayer this year to help all our families grow in faith. With the change to the age for Confirmation, Bridge will be for students in grades PreK - 7th grade this year. Our 8th grade students will participate in the Confirmation Prep Program.

How does Bridge work?

Families gather once a month for Family Faith Formation. Parents and children will share a meal and fellowship together and with other families.  After the initial community time together, we will separate into age specific groups for the formation aspect of the evening.  Each session will also include a prayer experience as we journey together and worship our God as a family and a community.  Families will then have activities to take home each session to continue the lesson throughout the month as a family. There will also be supplemental online materials during the month on the Family Follow Up Page allowing families to dive deeper into the topic together.

Contact Mary Juliano Hayes with any registration questions.

Do you wish to homeschool your child?

Faith Formation at Holy Family is a Family Process. We strongly encourage you to participate in the Bridge sessions as a family and then if you wish to do more than we provide between sessions, we can provide you additional materials.

Occasionally parents choose the homeschool route, which means you register here and we provide you the book for each grade level and you teach each chapter to your child and complete the chapter review.

You will be invited to all the supplemental Faith Formation programs that happen through the year and can opt in to Bridge at any time by calling and transferring your registration later in the year if you change your mind.
