Religious Education

Our Religious Education Program is designed to help provide a foundation for the faith development of all parish children who are attending non-Catholic schools. We believe in a  family-focused approach that engages parents and children in developing a personal relationship with God. We also provide the religious instruction for each child to develop a solid understanding and lifelong practice of the Catholic faith and Christian service. 

In light of the uncertainties of the upcoming school year, we are hoping to launch a pilot program where each of our Religious Education student's families are connected individually with a catechist. It will be the role of the catechist to meet with each family on a monthly basis for instruction, faith sharing, and activity planning. These sessions could take place in the family home, on church grounds, or they could take place virtually. 

 
  • Each Religious Education Program Family would be assigned a Catechist to journey with them for the academic year.
  • The Family would “meet” with the Catechist for about 45 minutes to an hour each month. The timing of the session would be at a mutually agreed upon time and location. (This includes virtual meeting options)
  • The catechist would provide a syllabus of content each month with the necessary resources to accomplish the learning. This would be an easy step by step guide.
