Religious Education News

Covid-19 is still a problem in our country but you can be assured that our church building is safe.  The church is sanitized thoroughly after each Mass with a fogger and sanitizing spray.  Parishioners are required to wear masks and sanitize their hands before entering.  And all parishioners are required to sign in at the door to insure that we do not exceed maximum capacity.  

We still have plenty of space for you and your children.  Please attend Mass with your children regularly.

The strongest teacher is a Good Example!

Bishop Malloy’s most recent letter states that we have permission to hold religious education in our building. Classes will resume on Sunday, January 31st.   

All students should bring their religious education books to class.  If you do not have a book for your child, please contact Carol Romano.

 

When completing your home studies, it is important to focus on:

*The Ten Commandments

*Prayers

Especially The Lord’s Prayer

        Hail Mary

        Glory Be

        Apostles’ Creed

 

The Catechism of the Catholic Church states “the role of parents in education is of such importance that it is almost impossible to provide an adequate substitute.  The right and duty of parents to educate their children are primordial and inalienable.”

The strongest teacher is a Good Example!

Give up and take up for Lent

Throughout the year, we can get caught up in behaviors that lead us away from God.  Lent is a gift from the Church to help us find our way back.  Like eating healthy foods, good Lenten practices help children to grow up healthy, strong and headed for Heaven.  Try these ideas to have a positive Lenten experience:

Penance – Even young children understand that if we make a mess we must clean it up and try not to do it again.  When we disobey God, we need to confess our sins and try to do better.

Prayer – Children with good prayer habits become adults who pray.  Refresh your prayer habits and encourage children to start and end the day with prayer

Acts of Kindness – Our sins affect others, so offering kindness is a good way to compensate.
