St. Paul’s Parish
Religious Education Program
St. Paul’s Religious Education welcomes all children to our program.
It’s never too late to begin learning about your faith.
“Education in the faith by the parents should begin in the child’s earliest years…Family catechesis
precedes, accompanies, and enriches other forms of instruction in the faith.” (CCC #2226)
Faith Formation is offered for students in Kindergarten through High School. Classes meet on Wednesdays.
4:30 – 5:45 (K-5) and 6:30 – 7:45 (K-12).
RELIGIOUS EDUCATION: BEGINS HOME-BASED CATECHESIS THIS YEAR
To ensure everyone’s safety, as well as consistency of our parish program, all Religious Education families will begin the year using home-based catechesis. In-person (Brick and Mortar) will not be offered until further notice.
Home-based Family Catechesis provides opportunities for parents to catechize their children directly, for spouses to catechize each other and for children to catechize one another and their parents. (National Directory for Catechesis #61.2).
Families will be provided the appropriate grade-level workbook and an E-book for students. Weekly lessons will be sent to parents with a step-by step session plan that includes everything you will need to guide your child/children with their lesson. Families with multiple children in the program are provided access to a Multi-Age Family Session Guide.
Registered families will be provided additional information regarding textbook-pick-up and instructions for family/student participation.
Mark your calendars for September 16th, between 6-8PM, to ‘Drive-by’ and pick-up your child’s workbook and instructions for participation in our program.
All families must re-register each year. Religious Education classes are for students in grades K-8 who do not attend a Catholic school. Contact the Religious Education Office for information regarding your child’s faith formation and sacramental preparation at 249-2660.

Faith: the Next Generation – Pass It On!
Boldly go where many have gone before and help pass on the Good News of Jesus Christ and our Catholic faith! This fall, children in grades kindergarten through grade 8, will sign up to learn more about Jesus and the Catholic faith. You can help by becoming a catechist for Faith Formation. As you nurture the faith of our young, you will learn and grow as well! As one long-time catechist put it, “I learn so much from the children!” We provide you with training, materials, and support. Classes begin September 16. If interested or for more information, contact Mimi Coleman: 249-2660 or firstname.lastname@example.org
