Religious Education Options for Classes for 2020-2021.  Due to social distancing guidelines, our class options have changed, so please read this notice carefully.

Summer Academy 2 Week Intensive: For 1st through 8th grades. July 27 – August 7, between 9:00 – 11:30 each morning. Students will be asked to watch the 8:00 am online Mass each morning. Each grade will then meet for a brief (approximately 20 minute) online lesson and students receive their assignments for the day. Due to social distancing guidelines, we will not be able to have classes meet in the school building this year. Students are required to participate online every day of the 2 week program along with 4 evening classes (when we can gather together) and additional parish events throughout the school year.

Traditional classroom: For K through 8th grades on Mondays only (6:00 – 7:15 pm). Classes run from late September until the end of April. If social distancing guidelines prohibit in-person classes, attendance for online lessons will be required until students can attend class in the school building. 

Family Catechesis: This program is offered to 1st through 7th grade students only.  As a parent you will teach your child at home for three weeks with materials that we provide. The student and a parent are also required to attend an evening class (on Wednesdays) once a month to review what was taught at home and for a family lesson on a Church tradition or season: The Rosary, All Saints’ Day, The Liturgical Year, Advent, etc. The student and a parent must attend this once-a-month class. These evening classes will be scheduled on Wednesdays and the dates will be announced in July.

Volunteers are needed! In an effort to keep our class sizes small and intimate, we are in need of catechists (teachers), aides, hall monitors, and substitutes. Registration fees for catechists/assistants are either waived or discounted. Anyone who is willing to share their faith with our students is welcome to be a volunteer. Confirmation candidates and Honor Society students could earn their required service hours as aides, monitors, etc. We would also like to have a teacher’s aide in every classroom to ensure that our students stay focused and get the personal attention they may need. Please prayerfully consider supporting our program in this way. This is also a great opportunity for you to learn more about your faith. No teaching experience is necessary and training can take place over the summer months.
For the safety of our children, all volunteers are required to pass a criminal background check and attend a Virtus/Safe Environment session before they begin volunteering. Please contact the Religious Education office for details.

Bulletin Announcements: Be sure to keep an eye on the parish bulletin for announcements of upcoming events relating to the program. The bulletin is also available on the parish website.
God Bless you and may this new academic year bring many blessings in your child’s faith journey.
In faith,
Kathleen Del Prato
Coordinator
