Summer Academy is on! This year, we'll have a home study based model for our students. Our Religious Education Team will be supporting our families through caregiver-guided instruction. Find out more information here and to find out how to register click here.


Program Expectations

Due to Diocesan Policies families participating in Summer Academy are required to attend (4) Four in Parish activities during the year. At the discretion of the Parish Office of Religious Education, families who fail to meet this requirement may be blocked from enrolling in this program in the future. (Please note 8th graders are not required to attend all 4 activities because they will be attending PURPOSE Confirmation) However, all students should attend the March 1st Family Life Session .

Family Catechesis Days

The Office of Religious Education will hold three Family Catechesis Days. These will meet on Sunday December 8, 2018, Sunday March 1, 2020 (this session will be extended to cover the requirement for the Family Life Program all students 1st-8th will be required to attend or opt-out officially) , and Sunday May 3, 2020. Attendance will be taken at each session.

Prayer and Liturgy Activities

You will notice that the Diocesan policy states (4) Four Parish Activities, and that there are only three Family Catechesis Days. This year each family will need to select (1) Prayer and Liturgy activity to complete the requirement. 

Some Recommended Events:

  • Parish Nativity Pageant and Christmas Eve Mass- Monday, December 24th 2019 (Beginning at 3:00 pm) (Rehearsal 12/19 at 5:30 pm in Church) 
  • Children’s Stations of the Cross- Friday, March 13th 2020 at 7:00 pm in Church (Arrive at 6:00 pm for Soup and Salad with the K of C, and rehearsal). 
  • Parish Reconciliation Services for Advent-Wednesday, December 18th at 7:00 pm or Lent – Wednesday, April 1st  at 7:00 pm. 

These events are meant to be an enrichment of our faith experience. Families may choose to participate in another parish event of their choosing. Children who participate as Altar Servers or Children Choir members may be excused from these activities with a note from the coordinator of these ministries.
