Religious Education

“Christ calls all the faithful to proclaim the Good News everywhere in the world and to hand his message onto successive generations by professing, living and celebrating the faith in Liturgy and prayer.  Evangelization and catechesis are among the principal means by which the Church hands on the faith.”

PARENTS! Welcome to the 2016-2017 Religious Education year.

Did you know that if your school age child is not attending a Catholic School, they should be registered in a Religious Education Program for their Catholic formation? In a recent study, 52% of all Catholic school age children are enrolled in parish based catechetical programs and 16% of Catholic elementary school age children are enrolled in Catholic schools. Perhaps 2% are being home schooled, and the percentage of Catholic young people of High School age who receive no systematic catechesis is generally much higher. Formation is just that, formation! Each year your children should be growing  in their knowledge of the faith, not to mention the promise of raising your children in the faith that you proclaimed at their Baptism. What we do in our parish program is promote knowledge of the faith, provide liturgical education, moral formation, prayer, community life and initiation into the mission of the Church. Do not deny your child this very basic aspect of life: Their Faith life. 

REGISTRATION:

 Registration for PREP and for Life Teen will open the weekend of Monday, August 6-7 for the 2016-2017 school year. The registration fee will be $50 per child ($25.00 more per  additional child). See Parent Information Sheet for details. The fee can be paid at the time of registration or can be billed. Remember, spaces are limited for the 4 year old class this year.
