Elementary Religious Education Classes
We are so happy to be returning to in-person religious education classes this year! As you can see from the pictures below, things may looked a little different on September 11 (our first day of classes in 2021, which included a prayer service around the flagpole to commemorate September 11, 2001)--but there were definitely smiles behind those masks! Students in Grades K through 5 meet on Saturdays from 9:00 to 10:30 a.m. during the months of September through April. Elementary grade children experience a spiral approach to learning our Catholic Faith as the four pillars of the Catechism of the Catholic Church--Creed, Sacraments, Morality, and Prayer--are taught and developed on every grade level every year. There is an emphasis on understanding the Scriptures, particularly the Sunday Gospel. In addition to their texts, each grade uses the Pflaum Gospel Weekly to study the Gospel at their level. Information about First Reconciliation and First Communion can be accessed at the First Reconciliation/First Communion web page. Below are photos of our catechists and some scenes from this year's elementary religious education classes.
