Children in Kindergarten through 5th grade, we invite you to be a part of our Religious Education program! Faith is an on-going part of our lives as Catholics. Each Wednesday evening, we learn a key part of our faith through crafts, the Bible, and Liturgy. We participate in a service project, the Mass, exploring the Church, Adoration, and the May Crowing. A post-Sacrament class has been added to be more like youth group! Come play games, read the Bible, and learn about JESUS!
The post-Sacrament class that is offered during Religious Education evenings is for any children grade 3-5 that has already received their First Communion and would like to continue learning about our Catholic Faith. This class learns about our faith through games, skits, fellowship and teachings. It is a great way for your children to stay connected to the parish and each other after receiving their First Sacraments.
Note that the sessions will be held from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. weekly.
If you have any questions please call Beth in the Religious Education office at 349-7014. Please return all completed forms as soon as possible.

Pope Urges Faithful to Pick Up Their Rosaries
During this month of May dedicated to Mary, Pope Francis has invited the faithful to pick up their rosaries and call upon her in a special way. The Pontiff urged the faithful to invoke Mary's intercession, “so that the Lord may grant mercy and peace to the Church and to all the world," and encouraged them to take special care to pray the rosary during this month of May.
"A Christian who withdraws into himself, hiding all that the Lord has given him, is not a Christian! I would ask the many young people present to be generous with their God-given talents for the good of others, the Church and our world." - Pope Francis
"Difficulties and trials are part of the path that leads to God's glory. Therefore we must not be discouraged! We have the power of the Holy Spirit to overcome these trials!"
- Pope Francis (April 29, 2013)
The Christian proclaims the Gospel with his witness, rather than with words."
-Pope Francis (April 25, 2013)
