Religious Education

"Continue to Grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ”          

2 Peter 3:18 Our mission with the guidance of the Holy Spirit is to seek and proclaim the sacred scripture and to educate our families in faith formation through the preparation of the Holy Sacraments.  As Jesus quoted in Matthew 19:14:“Let the children come to me and do not stop them because the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”  Our ministry is to assist families in fulfilling the universal church’s mission to evangelize and catechize our parents and their children.  Through support and training of our catechetical leaders and catechists, we are prepared to nurture the catholic faith to our parish children.  Religious Formation begins with grade 1 with on-going formation to receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation.

BABY BOTTLE BOOMERANG

As part of Respect Life Month we have chosen to partner with Rhode Island Right To Life and their Baby Bottle Boomerang program. The children in our CCD program,  grades 1-6 will be participating in the volunteer program.  Also they were given information about the program to take home. We are participating as an effort to help women in crisis pregnancies with everything from ultrasounds to baby formula, diapers, food and blankets and various other essentials. Our students will fill the bottles with coins and dollars and return them in an effort to help these women and their families. Checks can be made payable to Right to Life Services. This is a worthwhile project for the children to experience and a teaching moment for the children—it is an example of helping others, especially the babies.

 

RCIC (FIRST EUCHARIST) FOR CHILDREN

Parents of children in grades 3 and up who have not received First Communion should contact the Religious Education Office to register their child(ren) for classes and further information. To avoid confusion, these students have not attended classes this past school year.
