St. Patricia Religious Education Mission Statement
We, Catechists of Saint Patricia Parish, in response to God’s unconditional love and call, commit ourselves to share His Divine Word through prayer, worship, instruction of Faith, Sacramental Preparation, Spiritual formation, and personal witness. With enlightenment and guidance of the Holy Spirit and nourished by the Eucharist, we strive to touch the hearts of all who desire a personal, intimate relationship with the Triune God of Love and Compassion.
Religious Education Classes
St. Patricia provides Religious Education for children in Early Childhood through 8th grade.
All classes, for the full year program, begin in the church at 6:00PM for a 15-minute Prayer Service before classes. Parents are encouraged to stay and pray with us for the Prayer Service. Classes for the SIRE program begin in the classroom as they visit the Chapel, througout the program, for Prayer.
Each family is asked to become actively involved in St. Patricia’s Religious Education Program and Parish in order to model a living, conscious and active Christian faith and to reinforce the values and attitudes for living that faith. The family and their children also agree to act in accordance with these values and attitudes.
Parents of children in all grades are encouraged to support the efforts of the Religious Education program in the following ways:
Show interest each week in what is happening in class by asking questions, checking folders, and reviewing any handouts.
Help your child be conscientious about the homework assignments given to them.
Attend Mass on Sunday and Holy Days and receive the Sacraments frequently.
Actively participate as a volunteer by helping out in the classroom, in the parking lot, or school building during sessions, or assist during special events.
