Religious Education

"Continue to Grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ”          

2 Peter 3:18 Our mission with the guidance of the Holy Spirit is to seek and proclaim the sacred scripture and to educate our families in faith formation through the preparation of the Holy Sacraments.  As Jesus quoted in Matthew 19:14:“Let the children come to me and do not stop them because the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”  Our ministry is to assist families in fulfilling the universal church’s mission to evangelize and catechize our parents and their children.  Through support and training of our catechetical leaders and catechists, we are prepared to nurture the catholic faith to our parish children.  Religious Formation begins with grade 1 with on-going formation to receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation.
