Religious Education

Religious Education classes are provided for children in grades 1-8.  Students in 1st and 2nd grade prepare for the Sacrament of Reconciliation and the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist.  Students in grades 7-8 prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation.

As a parish students in grades K-8 will learn the faith through a Catechetical series called A Family of Faith.  This parish family-based Catechism series covers the entire Catechism of the Catholic Church in four years and assists parents in teaching their children the Faith. One special advantage of teaching children catechism at home is that it is an opportunity to draw your family closer together.  It also can be the occasion for correcting any errors that your children might have picked up, whether they go to Catholic or public school.

“A Family of Faith” creates communities of families who grow in faith and in relationship with one another. Catholic families not only learn the Faith but live it fully, becoming lifelong disciples.

               

Pope St. John Paul II, in Catechesi Tradendae, wrote “Family catechesis... precedes, accompanies and enriches all other forms of catechesis. Thus there cannot be too great an effort on the part of Christian parents to prepare for this ministry of being their own children’s catechists and to carry it out with tireless zeal.”

                    

The vision for “A Family of Faith” is strong Catholic families in which children learn the joys of following Jesus Christ and the truths of their Faith through the witness of Christian life given by their parents.

                    

The goals of the program are:

                    

  • To encourage and equip parents to fulfill their God-given duty and privilege of educating their children in the Catholic Faith.

 

  • To support and nurture strong Catholic families who image the Blessed Trinity.

 

  • To provide parents the opportunity for continued growth in the Faith.

 

  • To build community and celebrate Catholic life together through common prayer, service to others, social activities, and liturgical celebrations.
