R.E. is returning, but as with so many other facets of life during the emerging health crisis, it is going to look different. All of our classes will be virtual through Zoom. We are shifting to a family-based model where parents are empowered and prepared to teach their children the faith and live it more fully at home.
Each group will meet at a day and time which accommodates your schedule. The commitment will be 4 meetings per month. Two of these are 75-minute sessions during which parents must be present and participating. The other 2 meetings will be conducted by catechists with the children to supplement the lessons done at home and provide community for the children.
All of our registration is now online and we have volunteers to assist those who may have connectivity issues.
We are certain there will be many questions and we will establish a weekly Zoom session to answer your questions and concerns.
Please email us at [email protected] and we will send you the Zoom link. The meetings will be held Monday afternoons and evenings: One at 3:30 PM and one at 7:00 PM.
All of our catechetical team is asking for God's richest blessings and graces for your families at this time.
We are growing in faith together during the 2019-2020 Religious Education year!
