OUR VISION

Leading hearts closer to Christ Our Redeemer.

 

OUR MISSION

To join the Diocese of Green Bay in making missionary disciples by journeying with you to

discover Jesus, follow Jesus, worship Jesus, and share Jesus.

OUR COMMITMENT

As staff, catechists and volunteers, it is our mission to:

+Provide a safe and nurturing learning environment.

+Provide opportunities for students and families to encounter Jesus’ unending mercy, hope, and love through prayer,

  catechesis, and the sacraments.

+Accompany students and families on their journey to grow in love for Jesus and His Body, the Catholic Church, by

  following the teachings of Jesus Christ in our daily lives.

+Invite students and families to “remain united” (Jn 15:4) with God the Father, through the power of the Holy Spirit,

  in continually striving to deepen our love for the holy Mass and all the Sacraments.

+Form, inspire, and equip students and families to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with others.

 

The Religious Education Program is not a substitute for parents, who are the primary educators of their children and who are crucial in a child’s faith development. We hope that through our program, parents and children can grow in faith together, therefore, becoming a strong community of believers in our parish and community.

 

RESPONSIBILITIES OF PARENTS

We encourage you to:

+Pray together as a family.

+Attend Mass every Sunday and Holy Day of Obligation.

+Encourage regular and prompt attendance, making classes a priority for the child.

+Continue to learn about the Catholic faith.

+Volunteer your services: Our volunteer catechists are believing adults who share their faith through teaching our children.    Please prayerfully consider a ministry to share your faith with our children.

CLASSES

Classes are held on Wednesday evenings.

Grades K-5 meet from 6:00—7:15 pm

Grades 6-11 meet from 6:00—7:30 pm

 

 

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

It’s because of our volunteers that we can operate our Religious Education Program. We are always in need of: Catechists, Classroom Aides, Hall Monitors, and more. If you are interested in being a volunteer, complete the Volunteer Form and return it to the Religious Education Office. 

 

 

SACRAMENTAL PREPARATION

First Reconciliation-Reconciliation “brings to the Christian God’s merciful forgiveness for any sins committed after Baptism, and it brings the sinner consolation and peace” (AFC, 69).

 

+Students must be baptized.

+A First Reconciliation Retreat and service will be held in December.

 

First Holy Communion-Holy Communion is “the Eucharistic meal of the Body and Blood of Christ, which: )1) reminds us of the Last Supper, (2) celebrates our unity with one another in Christ, and (3) is a foretaste of the eternal Messianic Banquet of Heaven” (AFC, 245).

 

+Students must be baptized.

+Traditionally, parishes in the Diocese of Green Bay celebrate this sacrament in second grade. If the child has not been

   in any religious education class, please contact Joan Stemler, CRE/YM.

+Regular attendance at Sunday Mass with family is expected for each child preparing to receive First Holy Communion.

+Students must know their prayers: Sign of the Cross, Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be, Act of Contrition.

 

Confirmation-Confirmation is “a sacrament that confirms or strengthens the life of the Spirit which was given to us at Baptism. In virtue of this sacrament, the faithful are obliged to spread and defend the Faith as true witnesses of Christ” (AFC, 59).

 

+Students must be baptized.

+Students must have a desire to receive the sacrament.

+At our parish, students receive the sacrament of Confirmation at the end of their junior year, and must have completed

  the high school religious education classes. If they have not been in any high school religious education class, please

  contact Joan Stemler, CRE/YM.
