About Religious Education

Our Catholic faith tradition has always acknowledged the central role of the parents in the formation of their children’s faith.  As disciples of Jesus Christ we are here to assist parents in their role as the primary catechists to their children.  We share the belief that  “the witness of Christian life given by parents in the family comes to children with tenderness and parental respect.  Children thus perceive and joyously live the closeness of God and of Jesus made manifest by their parents in such a what that this firs Christian experience frequently leaves decisive traces with last throughout life.  This childhood religious awakening which takes place in the family is irreplaceable?  Indeed, ‘family catechesis precedes, accompanies and enriches all for of catechesis.’” The General Directory of Catechesis

It is the goal of our parish, coordinators, catechists and volunteers to work diligently with parents to encourage, support, strengthen and enhance their work in the formation of their children for the Kingdom of God.

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. Catechism of the Catholic Church 2226
