Religious Education for Children
General registration for the 2021-2022 Religious Education Program will take place in Syrianey Hall after all Masses on Sunday, August 29.
This year there will be two options:
- Home based program for general Religious Education
- Limited size, on site classes for general Religious Education (required for sacramental preparation).
Classes begin the week of September 12. For registration to be complete all paperwork, including birth certificates and baptismal certificates, must be submitted.
Cost of the program is $65 per student with a maximum of $150 per immediate family. Sacramental preparation for non-registered (at least 6 months) individuals is an additional $35 per student.
St. Michael’s Religious Education curriculum offers solid content in catechetical sessions appropriate to each age level. We also understand the need to experience and learn within a living community. Therefore, we will integrate all learning with the faith life of the family and the whole parish.
The Christian vision of family life speaks about the family as a community of life and love. It proclaims that family life is sacred, that family activities are holy, and that God’s love is revealed and communicated in new ways each and every day through Christian families. This Christian vision of family life calls families to a unique identity and mission. The Church emphasizes that the family is the domestic church or the church of the home. The family shares in one and the same mission that Christ gives to the whole church. The U.S. Catholic Bishops proclaim this vision in Follow the Way of Love when they write: A family is our first community and most basic way in which the Lord gathers us, forms us and acts in the world. The early church expressed this truth by calling the Christian family a domestic church or church of the home.
