“Education in the faith by the parents should begin in the child’s earliest years… The parish is the Eucharistic community and the heart of the liturgical life of Christian families; it is a privileged place for the catechesis of children and parents.”
–The Catechism of the Catholic Church 2226
Finding God - Elementary Religious Education
The purpose of this program is to provide ongoing instruction of elementary age children. Finding God, the curriculum developed by Loyola Press, uses a unique, effective and comprehensive approach to learning.
Finding God: Our Response to God’s Gifts is based on a spiral curriculum that integrates the fundamental themes of the Catechism of the Catholic Church with Scripture and Catholic Social Teachings. As children are introduced to and revisit concepts and vocabulary from one year to the next, their knowledge and experience both broaden and deepen. This program provides lessons in the faith and delivers those lessons through experiential activities that encourage lifelong practice.
Classes are offered on Sundays at 9 - 9:45 am and 11:30 am - 12:15 pm. These classes are available to children that enrolled in the Religious Education Program.
