Religious Education

ACHESON-MICHAEL-188From the desk of the Regional Director of Religious Education

Faith-Fellowship-Fun – these are the hallmarks of a religious education program. It is my duty as Regional Director of Religious Education to see that these goals are being met. If you are a child or an adult and attend any of our religious education classes and programs, you should leave with a better understanding of your Catholic faith, you will get to know people in our faith community that you may not have met before, and you should have fun – which is something as director, I will always try to promote.

The class schedules at Queen of Angels and Saint Joseph’s will be slightly different this year–
Our K-5 Program for both parishes will meet every other week on Wednesdays, 6:00PM to 7:30PM as follows:

St. Joseph classes will begin on Wednesday, September 6th at 6:00PM with a parent meeting in the parish hall. The next class will be two weeks later on Wednesday, September 20th, and so on, throughout the 2017-2018 school year. Class times are longer, but there will be fewer classes.

Queen of Angels classes will begin on Wednesday, September 13th at 6:00PM with a parent meeting in the St. Anne room. The next class will be two weeks later on Wednesday, September 27th, and so on throughout the 2017-2018 school year.

All those children preparing for the Sacrament of First Holy Communion, even if you are a student at Queen of Angels, will be required to attend religious education classes. The sacrament of the Eucharist is the “source and summit of our faith”, a lifetime commitment to Jesus, and the community of His Catholic Church.

The Middle School Program will begin at Queen of Angels on Friday, September 15th at 3:00PM in the St. Anne Room.  St. Joseph Middle School program will begin on Wednesday, September 20th at 3:00PM. This is a weekly class.  Get ready for a great year at both parishes.

The High School Program – Intentional Disciples will begin at Queen of Angels on Thursday, September 14th at 6:30PM in the Mary Room. Saint Joseph Intentional Disciples will begin Thursday, September 21st at 3:00PM in the RE Bldg. Learn about your faith, meet new people, and we will also try and have some fun – this is a guarantee.

The Confirmation Program is open to anyone of high school age who has meant the Archdiocesan requirements. Classes are combined between Queen of Angels and St. Joseph parishes and will begin September 10th.  Ongoing classes will meet each scheduled Sunday in the St. Benedict room at Queen of Angels Parish beginning at 12:15PM.

Thank you.

Note:  A fee of $20 per child (subject to means) is requested to cover the cost of his/her books.
