K - 6th Grade Religious Education
Information from Email dated December 2020 to our In Person Class Students in grades 2nd, 7th, and 8th.
In support of Livonia Public Schools decision to continue with offsite learning until January 19, 2021, we will continue to hold our Sunday morning classes as ZOOM classes at the regularly scheduled class time, 9:45-10:45 AM. We do this in an overabundance of caution and do plan on resuming our present schedule of Sunday in person classes for January 24, 2021.
All registered Sunday students will continue to receive a link in an email for the Sunday morning ZOOM class on the Friday before the weekend.
Please click on the link given to join the class. We ask that you join by 9:45 AM to be on time and have your audio and video turned on so that the catechist may see your child’s face and hear them. Attendance will be based on these two items (audio and video turned on and left on). A separate link will be sent the Friday before for these dates: December 6, December 13, January 3, and January 10.
A reminder that there are NO classes on these dates: December 20 and December 27, and January 17.
Thank you for your understanding and your continued support in your child’s faith development. God bless, take care and please be safe!

Religious Education 2020-2021
We pray this finds you and your family well and healthy. It has been a trying time these last few months and continues to be a challenge especially when we must consider the safety and well-being of our children. We have wrestled back and forth in planning for Religious Education for 2020/2021 with our primary goal the safety of our students, catechists, compromised family members, and the St. Edith school students with whom we share space. At this time it has been decided that we will be offering the following for St. Edith Religious Education students. This plan will be revisited in late November and December for a possible change in January.
Students in grades 1, 3, 4, 5, and 6 will be online. These weekly recorded lessons will be catechist led and will be available for your child to watch and complete at your convenience during that week. This means that you do not have to be online at a specific time to participate in the lesson. A link to these recordings will be emailed weekly to the primary email written on your registration form. There will be an assessment that will be completed by your child to be returned to the Religious Education office through email. Materials will be available for pick up soon.
Students in Sacramental preparation grades, (2nd, 7th and 8th graders), have the option to attend weekly classes in person on Sunday mornings from 9:45-10:45AM beginning October 4th or online on Mondays through ZOOM starting Oct. 5th from 5:00-6:00PM for 2nd graders and 5:30-6:30PM for 7th and 8th graders. These sessions are not recorded but live to enable interaction with the catechist.
If you want online sessions please type in “online class” in the Missed Sacraments/Notes box on the Registration Form. Please see the additional letter regarding safety protocols that are in place for ALL in person students.
Students who have attended our Special Needs program in the past will be contacted regarding scheduling in person classes after we receive your registration.
Students who are missing Sacraments will be contacted regarding scheduling in person sacrament preparation after we receive your registration.

About the Religious Education Program
Religious Education classes include preparation for the completion of the Sacraments of Initiation; Reconciliation and Eucharist during the second grade.
The goal of our Religious Formation Program is to provide an awareness of God’s presence in our children's lives and an appreciation, connectedness and better understanding of the Catholic faith and its traditions. We look forward each year as we partner with our parents helping our young people further their understanding and practice of our Catholic Faith as they take another step closer in getting to "Know, Love & Serve" the Lord here at St. Edith!
All catechists participate in the Protecting God's Children program. If you would be interested in sharing your faith and helping our children understand the faith more consider giving your time to this ministry! Contact Linda Kramer for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org or 734-464-2020.
Children needing sacraments:
If a child needs sacraments, they are given an opportunity to study the Catholic Faith on their level. We will work with the families. Please contact us!Go to main navigation
