  • Welcome to Family Friendly Catechesis!



    What’s that? 

    Family Friendly means that if you have two or three children, all of them would come to the Parish Religious Education Program (P.R.E.P.) at the same time on the same day of the week. So if you have children in Grades 2, 5 and 8, you can sign them all up for PREP for the 4:15-5:30 PM Session on Wednesdays or the Wednesday 6:45-8:00 PM Session.

    Why are you doing this? 

    We offer the PREP to support you in your primary vocation as teachers of your children. Our goal is to allow you more time with your family by making Religious Education easier to schedule. 

  • What is Catechesis?



    It’s all about Jesus, who shows us the Father and reveal His love for us! Or in the words of the Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC): At the heart of catechesis we find the Person of Jesus of Nazareth, the only Son from the Father. . .who suffered and died for us and who now, after rising, is living with us forever. 

    How does this work? 

    Catechists, will use a textbook to teach:
    • What did Jesus say and do?
    • What do we believe?
    • How do we encounter the Risen Lord Jesus in the Sacraments?
    • How do we pray?
    • How are we called to live?
     

    How can all eight grades be offered at the same time? 

    All eight grades can only be offered if generous, parents and parishioners prayerful consider the call of the Holy Spirit to volunteer in PREP as a Hall Monitor, as an Aide in the Classroom, as an Office Assistant or as a Catechist. Perhaps, you might be interested in helping out as a substitute catechist. Most important of all, you can pray for all of us in PREP

    What do I need to do?

    You do not need to do any other paperwork, your child is already registered. I am in the process of determining the days on which PREP will be offered. Once that is established, you’ll be contacted to identify the day you prefer your child to attend PREP.

    What about the Mass Slips?
    Do continue to give the priests or deacons the Mass slips.
