Faith Milestones

At Resurrection, we want to partner with households to support lifelong faith formation in the home. Faith Milestones seek to name, bless, and gift special and significant moments in one’s faith journey. They also provide opportunities for households and families to learn specific faith practices together. After completing each milestone, participants receive a blessing and a gift to symbolize the milestone. Milestones are offered for children and youth of all ages, marking key points in a child’s life between the cradle and high school graduation.
