*** School of Religion and Confirmation Registration for the 2016 — 2017 year continues! ***
Forms are available on the narthex tables, and the Parish Office. Check FILES button on this website.
Parents and guardians, please plan for the School of Religion and Confirmation Class to meet on most Sundays from September 25, 2016 until May 22, 2017 from 9:00 AM — 10:15 AM.
New Catechists and aides are needed: Catechists are religious education teachers. We are planning for six classes (Kindergarten; 1st/2nd grade; 3rd/4th grade; 5th/6th grade; 7th/8th grade; Confirmation). Catechists are practicing Catholics and registered parishioners who are willing to devote time to form our children in the faith. You are welcome to join us, whether or not you have prior experience. They have a passion for following Jesus within His Church. They are open to sharing what the faith means in their lives and allow children to do the same. Catechists must be willing to participate in formation activities to enhance their ministry. They must be trained in the “Shield the Vulnerable” training program if they have not done so before. Please contact Darron Woodus (see contact information above).
PREPARING YOUTH FOR FIRST RECONCILIATION, FIRST EUCHARIST, OR CONFIRMATION
The policy of the Archdiocese of Baltimore is that our children must have at least one year of religious education prior to year in which they will receive the sacraments. The usual year to receive First Reconciliation and First Eucharist is Second Grade. The usual year to receive Confirmation is Ninth Grade.
We can help those who have not received the sacraments during the usual years. Please contact our Coordinator of Religious Education, Darron Woodus (see contact information above).
