"This resource is a great way to introduce or enhance family-centered and intergenerational experiences at church."
—John Roberto, author, Reimagining Faith Formation for the 21st Century
"Having been in charge of celebrating these events for many years, I thought I was already doing everything possible! After reading Faithful Celebrations, I am empowered by the background information to do a better job of teaching the ‘why’ we are celebrating and am excited to implement several fresh ideas to make the events more meaningful."
—Katherine Gould, Christian Formation Director, Christ Episcopal Church, Tuscaloosa, Alabama
