K-8th Grade Religious Education and K-12 Faith Formation
We are happy to partner with all of our parish families! Together, we are all part of the parish’s children’s Faith Formation efforts. As the Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches us, “Parents have the first responsibility for the education of their children. They bear witness to this responsibility first by creating a home where tenderness, forgiveness, respect, fidelity, and disinterested service are the rule. The home is well suited for education in the virtues.” (CCC 2223) This describes what we refer to as the domestic church. Our parish staff and volunteer catechists are happy to partner with our parish families to strengthen our young disciples, promote lifelong learning and aid in fostering the desire to know, love and serve Christ Jesus, especially through the Eucharist and all Sacraments. In addition to Religious Education instruction, we also make available multiple opportunities to fulfill Holy Days of Obligation and increasingly more options to pursue action through encounters with the Eucharistic Jesus, personal prayer life and the Works of Mercy. Faith Formation and fellowship opportunities for children of all ages occur all year long. Follow us on Facebook or check out the weekly bulletins to learn more.
Should you have any questions, ideas to share or would like to volunteer, please connect with Jammie Jamieson or one of our other staff members who also support K-8 Faith Formation!
Hour long Religious Education classes for students in Kindergarten through 8th grade are held on Wednesday nights at 6pm from mid-September through the beginning of May. We utilize JFK school classrooms and have wonderful catechists and classroom aides to support your children in their learning. Please see the Registration Form and current calendar below. Contact Jammie with any questions.
