Religious Education

We believe that children a vital part of our Catholic Community.  It is imperative to help them experience this world in a Catholic Christian community, where the values of love, peace, and social justice are lived daily and where respect and dignity are afforded to all.

The Church teaches that families are the primary teachers of children.  The home is the first place that faith is witnessed.  Parents may share this responsibility with others, but they do not relinquish it.  The goal of  Religious Education is to assist families in passing on the Catholic faith to their children.

SUMMER ACTIVITIES:

PROGRAM OVERVIEW:

Religious Education is for children and youth from 1st through 8th grade who are not attending a Catholic school.  Through a variety of programs and activities, we assist families in helping their children form a lasting relation with Jesus and learning about our Catholic Faith.  Weekly classes are led by volunteer catechists (teachers) of different ages, cultures and life experiences.  Classes begin in September and end in May.

SACRAMENTAL PREPARATION:

Religious Education prepares children for the sacraments of Reconciliation (Confession) and First Communion.  There is also a program to prepare children, 7 years old and up, for Baptism and full initiation into the Catholic Church.

CHILDREN WITH SPECIAL NEEDS:

All children are entitled to come to know Jesus and participate in the life of the church to whatever degree they are able.  If you have a child with a special need, we can work with you to set up a plan for your child.

 REGISTRATION INFORMATION:
