General Information


The Office of Religious Education implements the catechetical mission of the Saint Paul Parish community. In close cooperation with the Saint Paul parish community, youth ministry, and families, we seek to provide solid instruction in religious and moral values. We foster an environment where faith is nourished and practiced in the events and activities of people’s daily lives. More than five-hundred young Catholics benefit from our services and engage in building a community where people love God and each other.


Goals

Our goal is to help children and teens to develop and grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ and with others. We journey with them as they begin to understand and appreciate faith in their personal lives. At the end of the program, provided that they fulfill the requirements and expectations, specified by the Religious Education Office, and are supported by their families, children and teens will:

1. know and the be able to articulate their faith fundamental teachings of the Catholic Church
2. appreciate the Sacramental life by going to Sunday Mass and to confession frequently
3. recognize prayer as the source of strength in everything they do
4. understand that their actions, no matter how small or insignificant, affect others
5. identify their talents and the ways to help people in need.


 

Expectations

Members of the Saint Paul Religious Education program are expected to make a personal commitment to learn about, love, and follow Jesus Christ. Also, students and their families must:

  1. Attend weekly catechetical sessions and Sunday Mass
  2. Participate actively in grade-level Eucharistic Liturgies and Confessions (see dates and other details below)
  3. Participate at community service activities, prayer service, and other events scheduled by the Office of Religious Education

 

Books

We use textbooks from the Faith and Life series, grades six through eight. This series bases its instruction on Sacred Scripture and the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Its focus is salvation history. It addresses creation of the human person, the fall of Adam and Eve, and God’s promise of Salvation, and, therefore, the coming of Jesus Christ to show the way to God. Visit www.ignatius.com for more information about the textbooks we use.
