Parents, we are asking for your cooperation when picking up your children from catechism.  For the safety of all the children, we must ask that you remain behind the double doors at both ends of the classroom hallways until all the children return to their rooms after Benediction.  For the first few weeks, we may run a few minutes behind because we are trying to teach the children the proper way to enter the church during Adoration and exit after Benediction.  Thank you in advance for your understanding and patience.

We often hear that the young people of today are selfish, but that certainly does not apply to many of the young people of our parish. We are thrilled to share with you that we have several teenagers that have volunteered their time to help in our classrooms assisting our religious education teachers. Former Confirmation Students have offered their help with some of our parish’s service projects, even though it is no longer a requirement. We are very proud of these students and want to recognize and thank them for their efforts to live their lives as God wants them to. These young men and women are learning by the examples of their parents and the many volunteers of our parish whose efforts are obviously noticed.

We have a class for children with special needs.

There are also many more volunteers behind the scenes that help keep the program running smoothly. They may update our webpage, supply signs, donate items for the children, mentor a student or help us to keep our bulletin article on track but just like the teachers, they give of their time and talents so the children of this parish may develop a deeper knowledge of their faith and a stronger relationship with Jesus. Thank you and may God bless you all!
