Religious Education starts this week…

Classes for our Religious Education will begin September 27, 2018.

Did you know that according to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, Parents are the primary educators in there child’s life?  Guiding our children in the Catholic faith illuminates their place in society with faith and morality.  The primary focus is to start early and build their Religious Education as they grow and mature.

“Education in the faith by the parents should begin in the child’s earliest years. This already happens when family members help one another to grow in faith by the witness of a Christian life in keeping with the Gospel. Family catechesis precedes, accompanies, and enriches other forms of instruction in the faith. Parents have the mission of teaching their children to pray and to discover their vocation as children of God. The parish is the Eucharistic community and the heart of the liturgical life of Christian families; it is a privileged place for the catechesis of children and parents.”
