2017/2018 RELIGIOUS EDUCATION REGISTRATION
Registration for our 2017-18 Religious Education program is now open. Our Religious Education program is open to students in 1st through 11th grades. Class will begin in late August and end in March.
Holy Rosary Church would like to welcome all students and parents. Our website is to be used as a reference for important dates and information throughout the year. Our staff and volunteers are working hard to prepare for meaningful faith formation experiences for the students. As many of you know religious education consists of more than merely transmitting information. Students will be encouraged to learn and share ways to live their Catholic faith. We only have the students for a limited amount of time. Therefore, it is critical for parents to demonstrate faith experiences in the home and in life outside of the classroom. Participation in the sacraments, particularly Sunday Eucharist is vital to the well being of your child’s faith. Parents have shared the gift of human life with their children and, through Baptism, have enriched them with a share in God’s own life. They have the duty to nourish it. Their faith, their attitude toward other human beings, and their trust in a loving God strongly influence the development of the child’s faith. Parents are catechists precisely because they are parents. Their role in the formation of Christian values in their children is irreplaceable.” National Directory for Catechesis
We are looking forward to serving you and your family in providing religious education for your child during this year. If you have any questions or concerns throughout the year, please do not hesitate to contact us at 647-3696.
All students will have prayers to learn each school year. Lists of prayers or Catholic practices that your child is expected to memorize, take to heart, or be familiar with are listed under their grade in the prayer booklet below. The catechist only have one hour to teach the lesson and to review the prayers. Please assist your child with these prayers. Click here for Prayer Booklet
Our staff and catechists are here to help your child learn and grow in his or her faith. The time for classroom religious education instruction is very limited, so it is of utmost importance that students are attentive and cooperate fully in order to make best use of their time. Students should always be respectful of adults and other students in the classroom as well as before and after class. Each teacher will make the students aware of the classroom rules, expectations and consequences. When a teacher determines that a student is disruptive to the class, they may choose to send the student to the office for the Director or Assistant Director to determine the best way to redirect him or her to the appropriate behavior. Parents/guardians will be contacted as deemed necessary. If parents/guardians are contacted, for a high school student, additional service hours will be required. Our objective in discipline, as in all of our religious education, is to instill Christ-like behavior in an appropriate manner. Should a problem be recurring, then a consult with the Director and parents may be requested. Your assistance in helping your child understand the importance of proper behavior in the classroom is greatly appreciated.
