Religious Education

Religious Education & Formation (Sunday School)

Our Religious Education Program is taught by faith-filled and loving catechists.  Our classes are from late September to early May on Sunday mornings from 10:15 to 11:15 am. We offer Pre-Kindergarten through 8th grade classes and 9th grade preparation for Confirmation. High School Bible Studies are also offered during the year.  Please contact Bernetta Palasik for more information and registration forms.

Catechist Assistant: Elementary and Middle School

This is a great place to start if you would like to be a Catechist one day!  Confirmation Candidates are also encouraged to be a part of this ministry for their service hour requirements.  Catechist Assistants help with all aspects of the class instruction.  You can attend every scheduled class time or just a few - whatever is convenient for you. If this ministry sounds like a match, please contact Bernetta Palasik.

Confirmation

This Confirmation program is one of the best!  We meet approximately 10 times a year for 2 hours on Sundays.  We incorporate personal spirituality, prayer life, service, lessons on Church history and catechism and guest speakers.  Just speak to a few of our Confirmed teens and they will tell you about this wonderful experience. This program is designed to make a difference in the life of a teen, we invite you to join us! Contact Bernetta Palasik for more information.

First Reconciliation & First Eucharist

The Sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Eucharist are usually received in the second grade of Religious Education.  Catechists teaching this grade assist the Director of Religious Eduation in preparing the children and their families for these sacraments.  Parents attend an information meeting for each sacrament and participate in Sacrament Retreat Days.  At these retreats, the children and their families learn more about Reconciliation and Communion through games, crafts, prayer and song.  Contact Bernetta Palasik for more information.

Children's Liturgy of the Word (CLOW)

(CLOW) seeks to help children understand and appreciate God's Word during the Liturgy. CLOW is offered at the 9:00 and the 11:30 am Mass times.  During CLOW, children experience the Gospel through songs, words and crafts.  If you have a love for children and can offer a few Sundays a year, you have the gifts to be a CLOW leader. Everything is provided for you!  Please contact Bernetta Palasik to be a part of this exciting ministry, both for children to participate or assistants to lead!
