Religious Education Teachers
The mission of our Religious Education Teachers is guided by the words of Pope Francis:
“Our task is a splendid mission, ministry of the Word that catechists have been carrying out uninterruptedly for almost two thousand years…On the lips of the catechist, the first proclamation must ring out over and over: ‘Jesus Christ loves you; he gave his life to save you; and now he is living at your side every day to enlighten, strengthen and free you’.
With the Pope’s words in mind our religious education teachers strive to instruct our children in the Catholic faith, to teach them the good news of the gospel, and to encourage them to share the love of Christ with their family, friends and community; all while encouraging parents in their roles as the primary teachers of the faith.
Our program provides formation in the Catholic faith for children from Kindergarten to 6th Grade, culminating in a Confirmation program for 7th & 8th Grade students. Kindergarten - 6th grade students meet on Wednesday evenings from 4:30- 5:45 p.m. beginning in mid-September and ending in early May.
Confirmation classes are held on Sunday mornings following the 10 A.M. Mass.
We have Vacation Bible School programs in the summer.
If you would like to volunteer your time and talent to help on our Religious Education program in any way, big or small, please contact Jammie Jamieson.
