UPDATE March 11, 2020
Dear Assumption Religious Ed. Families,
After meeting with our pastor and staff we have decided to suspend religious ed. classes starting this Sunday, March 15.
During this temporary stoppage, classrooms and offices will be deep cleaned and disinfected according to federal and state guidelines. We hope to re-open on April 14, (Tuesday Classes) and April 19 (Sunday Classes) but we will have to wait and see.
I have send you a link so you can access the Gospel Weeklies on line. We ask that you go over the weekly with your child so if and when we resume in April the students will be up to date.
I have also sent materials for First Communion prep.
Our Confirmation coordinator Marie Vandall will be sending a separate link for 7th and 8th grade on how access your lessons.
Pray that all our efforts to minimize exposure to the virus will help stop it from speeding.
Guided by the Holy Spirit, we look forward to a new catechetical year that we pray will enhance and enlighten the spiritual life of our Assumption Catholic faith community.
Our goal is to provide a Religious Education Program that consists of sacramental catechesis that offer the opportunity for children to open themselves to a deeper understanding of God’s presence in their lives. The program is open to the children of our parish. We offer age-appropriate religious education lessons to help enrich the spiritual lives of the children. We also aim support their parents, who are their children’s primary educators, to work at home in developing a love of Christ and His Church in their family.
Our religious education program consists of K- 8. Our September through May program offers Sunday session for grades 6th, 7th, and 8th at 9:00am. We also offer Sundays from 10:10am – 11:15am for K- 7.
Our formation classes are continuous and build one year upon the next. New students must submit a baptismal certificate at the time of registration.Sacramental preparation: Grade 1 is required for Grade 2 in which the children are prepared for First Reconciliation and Eucharist. Grade 6, and 7 are required for Grade 8 Confirmation preparation. Students enrolled in a Catholic school must attend First Eucharist and Confirmation classes here at Assumption Church.
