LIFT (Learning In Faith Together) is primary faith formation program at St. Michael Catholic Church. LIFT is a parish-wide, family catechesis model that focuses on assisting and equipping parents to become the primary educators and evangelizers of their children (Catechism of the Catholic Church 2223-2229).

LIFT families attend their regularly scheduled monthly LIFT Session together as a family (on either Sunday, Monday, or Wednesday). Each LIFT session is a combination of faith formation, small group conversation, faith sharing, prayer, and activity based learning for children. LIFT is offered each year from October through April and follows the four year cycle of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, with a fifth year focused on Sacred Scripture. At LIFT we use The Family of Faith activity based curriculum from Sophia Press for grades K thru 5 and the YOUCAT Teen Catechism for grades 6 thru 8. Adults participants in LIFT are provided with numerous resources, along with dynamic presentations each month to them grow in their own discipleship. Beyond monthly participation in LIFT, parents are encouraged to continue the conversation of faith at home with their children throughout the month using the assigned activities and materials.
