Religious Education Announcements

Summer Academy begins on Monday, July 23 at 9:00 am.

On the first day, Monday, July 23, parents are asked to bring their child(ren) to the School Gym. We will begin our day with prayer and a brief orientation. Children will meet and be dismissed from the gym with their catechist to their meeting place. Parents/Guardians are asked to remain in the gym until 9:30 am for orientation.

For the remaining days of Summer Academy, children in Grades 1, 3 and 4 are to be dropped off at the parish school. Children in Grades 5, 6, 7 and 8 grades are to be dropped off at the Spiritual Center. Students will be picked up from the building that they have classes. However, on Wednesdays and Fridays, we ask that all children be picked up at the school, due to the 12:10 pm Mass.

Please be attentive and courteous while operating your vehicle in the parish parking lot as you drop-off and pick-up your child(ren).

Children will be given a daily snack break. We ask that you pack them something for each day. Please avoid sticky drinks, and plan on sending water.

Because this is an intensive program there is an expectation that the children will be in attendance every day and on time. If there is an emergency please contact the Office of Religious Education to make arrangements.

During the two-week program, all of our children will be participating in singing lessons with the director of our children's choir. Families are invited to join us on Friday, August 3, as we conclude Summer Academy at 12:10 pm Mass. Children will be dismissed from the church at approximately 1:00 pm. The children will be participating in this liturgy and singing the songs that they have learned.

The Parish Children's Choir is welcoming new members for the 2018-2019 year. The choir consists of 50-60 boys and girls in grades 3 through 8 and meets in our church choir loft to rehearse every Monday night from 5:45 to 7:00 pm. The choir sings monthly for the 10:00 am Masses and also serves the parish by singing for other Masses and events as called upon. If you can't make it to every single rehearsal and every single Mass, that's ok. We understand homework, various obligations that arise, and visits to Grandma's!
