Welcome to St. Michael’s Parish Religious Education Program, a peace filled and joyful journey of Catholic faith formation with child, parent, and catechist being led by Jesus. We are honored to join your family’s faith journey, one that began with your child’s baptism. We are here to assist parents as they guide their children in our Catholic faith. Together all of us grow in love and develop our relationship with God, gaining an increased understanding of our Catholic faith. We begin and end each class, grades K through 8, as a family of God in prayer and focus on community, family, prayer, scripture, tradition, church, history, and service. Classes begin in September and finish in April.
Consistent communication with your family is vital to your family’s faith formation and connection to our parish community. The Coordinator of Religious Education greets every child with joy and compassion upon arrival to class and checks in and/or visits classes regularly. The coordinator sends a weekly or biweekly email to families with prayer, focus on faith, guidance for listening for the call of the Holy Spirit, attention to masses, and updates about our Religious Education classes and service opportunities, and invitations to happenings and events in our parish. The coordinator includes a “Good News from Religious Education” page in the parish bulletin at least once each month.
