7th & 8th Grade Religious Education
End of Year Notes
Sunday RE Sessions
There is no Religious Ed. Sunday March 31st and April 7th due to Spring Break.
Our final session is the Family Waffle Breakfast on Palm Sunday, April 14th in the Gym! All are welcome! Fr. Jim would like the Children to be in the Palm Sunday Procession in the church for the 11:00AM Mass. Our hopes are that we can gather the R.E. students with the Catechists after the breakfast and have them process in and then go to Children's Liturgy of The Word for the remainder of Mass.
If your son or daughter needs to leave or go to Mass with the family after the procession we will arrange for that as well!
Monday RE Sessions
Our final session will be on Monday, April 15. We will be having Mass followed by the Family Pizza Dinner in the Hall! All Are Welcome!
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.
