RELIGIOUS EDUCATION

 

STARE

Grades K-5:  Volunteers assist catechists with faith formation classes on Sundays.  There are also opportunities to help with Sacramental Preparation, the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd program, and CREED, the monthly family faith formation program.  First Holy Communion and Confirmation Masses and receptions offer other means of supporting faith formation.

Grades 6-12 Volunteer opportunities include the Edge program (Thurs. nights for Grades 6-8) and Life Teen high school program (Wednesday nights).  Adults serve as Core members who help plan and implement the programs, usually as small group leaders or as chaperones for outings, retreats, and camps.

Involvement requires Virtus training which is designed to protect the children of God by preventing sexual abuse.

RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults):  Volunteers assist in this program which is designed to help adults in the conversion process to Catholicism that includes: inquiry; learning about the faith; purification and enlightenment; and reflecting on the sacraments received, especially Eucharist.
