K-5th Grade Religious Ed.
Class Family Mass attendance is mandatory for students and will be counted toward perfect attendance. You should report to the Gathering Area prior to Mass for your child to sign the attendance sheet for Mass. If your child has a part in the Mass, they should arrive by 10:30 a.m. Of course, we encourage all our families to attend Mass every Sunday, as we all live out our Catholic faith; plus bringing your children to Mass is a part of the role you take-on in the religious education process of our young people.
PRAYER REWARD: Your child’s religious education is a partnership between you and your child’s religion teacher. You should have received a copy of our prayer reward system. It is nearly impossible for your child to learn his / her prayers, while covering 1-2 chapters, in an hour and fifteen minute religion class. This is where you step in and practice prayers with your child, maybe before bed each night. This routine will aide in the learning process and allow you quality time with your child.
SAFE ENVIRONMENT: For the safety of all of our children, please don’t speed through the parking lot. A couple of weeks ago, we had a near miss with a younger sibling crossing the parking lot. Also for safety reasons, if you escort your child to his / her class, please don’t linger in the hallways after the second bell / tone rings.
We encourage all parents to volunteer to help us with religion and our Children’s Ministry events. Parents wishing to help in any ministry involving children must go through the Safe Environment process. Please see me, call us or stop by the New Life Center (879-1506) for more information.
OUR SINCEREST THANK YOU: Our program cannot run without your support and cooperation. Thank you. If you have any questions or concerns, call Wanda or Amy in the Office of Religious Education at 879-1506.
