7th & 8th Grade Religious Education
St. Edith offers religious education classes for 7th and 8th grade. Religious education classes include preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation. A special youth mass is held before each session for grades 7-8. We look forward to another great year of partnering with our parents helping our young people to further their understanding and practice of our Catholic Faith as they take another step closer in getting to “Know, Love and Serve” the Lord here at St. Edith!
The goal of our Religious Formation Program is to provide an awareness of God’s presence in their lives and an appreciation and better understanding of the Catholic faith and its traditions.
Catechists facilitate small group discussions after an initial large group presentation. If you have a passion for sharing your faith with early adolescents consider helping out. Contact Colleen Misiak for more information.
Classes for 7-8th grade meet starting in October and run through April.
Sundays, 9:45 - 10:45 am (between 8:30 & 11:00 am Mass)
Mondays, 6:30 - 8:30 pm (1st & 3rd of most months)
Our 7th Grade students study the New Testament and begin the preparation for Confirmation. We try and make their faith journey appropriate for them and also to take it out of the classroom into a more informal setting. Exploring the lives of the Saints is also a component.
Eighth Grade - Confirmation
The Sacrament of Confirmation is celebrated in the 8th grade at St. Edith. As part of the process toward being confirmed Confirmation Candidates are asked to attend an overnight Retreat and to attend the Archdiocese CYO Wind Conference. The goal is to help our young people develop a relational faith and feel a greater connection to the faith community in addition to acquiring knowledge about it. The Confirmation program includes both the St. Edith School students and those from the area Public Schools.
