Our Mission

As a Religious Education Program we, along with the assistance of so many dedicated volunteers, try to create and organize a program which is alive and loving.  Our mission cannot succeed without the cooperation of you, the parents.  As Vatican II expressed the wisdom of the ages:

 

“Since parents have given children life, they are bound by the most serious obligation to educate their offspring and therefore must be recognized as the primary and principal educators.  This role is so important that only with difficulty can it be supplied when it is lacking… 

It is particularly in the Christian family, enriched by the grace and office of the sacrament of matrimony, that children should be taught from their early years to have a knowledge of God according to the faith received in Baptism, to worship Him and love their neighbor.”

 

 Families must be registered active parishioners whose children have been in the Religious Education program for at least one year (with the exception of first graders). However, all families must be registered active ("bona fide") parishioners for 1 year prior to enrolling.

 

Information by Age /Grade:
Please be aware that children entering grades 2-8 in Sept 2017 must have completed and passed their previous Religious Education work before they can be registered for the next school year.
