2021/2022 LFF/Religious Education Registration


Family Catechesis

Dear Parent/Guardian,


We want to take this opportunity to thank you for all your efforts and support during the 2020/21 school year. During this unprecedented time of change, our Catechists continued the Religious Formation of our young parishioners using Google Classroom and supported by your assistance. The Holy Spirit was undoubtedly guiding all of us during this time.

It is with great pleasure that we notify you that the 2021/2022 Lifelong Faith Formation/Religious Education Program will be in person


In the American Catholic Church, there is a shift from Religious Education to Lifelong Faith Formation. Several key Church documents have recently changed to include a new language focusing on the importance of a Family-focused Catechesis model. This family model is taking hold as a partnership between Catechists (Teachers) and Parents/Guardians (Witnesses of the faith) to make our student's experience of Jesus come alive.


To support this change, we are pleased to inform you that we will implement a Family Catechesis component to the Religious Education program with the new school year. Beginning in October 2021 and each month through April 2022 (7 sessions), we will add a Sunday Family Activity to the program. Our vision is that your participation in five of these seven dates will strengthen our efforts in the classroom. Each session will be approximately ninety minutes and will include time for fellowship. The Sunday Family Activity portion of the Religious Education program will begin after the 10:30 AM Mass on Sundays except for October 24, which will start at 3 PM.

The Sunday Family Activity sessions are:

In 2021: Sundays, October 24, November 14, December 12

In 2022: Sundays, January 23, February 27, March 13, and April 3.
