Online registration has begun for our Religious Education program (CCD, Sunday School); for those students on Pre-School through 8th Grade who do not attend our wonderful Catholic Schools.
We meet most Sundays in the St. John Elementary School from 10:00 until 11:30 a.m. Boasting a vibrant and fun gathered assembly each week, our program sets learning objectives for students to memorize certain Catholic prayers, Mass responses and basics of the faith. Silly songs, lots of laughs, practical prayers and interaction make the gathered time a hit with the kids and parents. Students then break off into their grade level classes. This year most students will be using a liturgical-based curriculum; the topics and themes they study will flow from the readings at Mass from each Sunday. We will be launching EDGE, a youth-ministry-style session for combined 6th through 8th graders as well!
To register online CLICK HERE! Registration fees have not changed in a few years: $50 for one student; $75 for two; $100 for three or more from the same family. You do not HAVE TO pre-register, but it makes the first day much easier on the catechists (teachers) if we have names in advance. Pre-registration also ensures we purchase enough books and materials.
This year parents may enter and exit with students from TWO doors off the back parking lot of the school: the breezeway entrance we have been using (at the halfway point of the long school building) or the gym entrance, going up the steps.
There is also a dynamic ADULT class for parents while the kids are in their sessions. We will begin in September with the DVD series focused on the Holy Spirit: The Wild Goose.
