RELIGIOUS FORMATION PROGRAM

Dear Parents, Catechists, Aides, and Hall Monitors,

We are glad to announce and offer the Religious Formation (RF) fall program in person. We are going to start our RF sessions October 12, 2020.

Welcome back to our new Catechetical year. Family is the domestic church and a school of holiness. We are all missionary disciples and this is a great responsibility of the parents to pass on the faith to our children. Hope to see you all in this faith journey.

For those of you who have already responded that you are uncomfortable coming to class in person, we will work with you remotely. 

In following CDC and Diocesan safety guidelines, these are the general guidelines that will be followed:

  • All classrooms and hallways will be sanitized after each session including high contact areas,
  • Everyone is required to wear a mask,
  • Children will sit 6 feet apart in the classroom,
  • Class size will be limited,
  • There will be one way in and one way out for arrival and dismissal,
  • There will be no large groups congregating on premises,
  • Parents will provide a mask and hand sanitizer for each of their children,
  • One child at a time will use the bathroom facilities,
  • More specific guidelines will be given prior to the start of RF classes.

There are a number of parents who have not yet responded to the survey; we will be calling those parents shortly.

We thank you for your cooperation, patience and your feedback on the survey.

Thank you for all you do at SEAS.

Blessings,
Mariam Nawab, PCL

RF Registration

We have new students join us throughout the year! If you are new to our parish community or just feel it is time to get your children involved in the RF program, we are here to help. Thank you for being part of our RF program.

Parents are encouraged to be involved as much as possible in the RF program!

You are welcome to help our RF program at SEAS by becoming a Catechist, Aide, Substitute Catechist, Building Coordinator, or Hall Monitor, and join us for daily Mass, Reconciliation, Sacramental meetings and all other activities that we offer throughout the year. As parents, you are the first and primary catechists of your children.

The RF program is there to support you in the faith and love of God.

Religious Formation Catechist/Volunteer Information!

Catechist and volunteers sign–up for 2020-2021.

Have you thought about being a Catechist, but have never given it a try? We have volunteer spots just waiting for you!

We have teaching opportunities for grades 1-8. Books and other materials are provided from the RF office. We have child care on Wednesday for your younger children. Stop by the RF office to see what opportunities are available. We will give you the curriculum and the books and help you choose the grade that is best for you.

We are blessed by Catechists and weekly volunteers!

The heart of our program is the dedication of our Catechists and their willingness to share their faith with our children. We are very grateful to our wonderful Catechists and volunteers who are witnessing the love of Christ to our children.

Catechist Development: Catechists are provided opportunities to further their own faith and learn new methods of catechesis through Echoes of Faith, Catechism Training workshops and classes offered in our parish and at our Diocese.

We Need You!!

Our most important need is for Catechists and Aides; however, other volunteers are needed as well.

Please consider giving some time for this important ministry.

This is a wonderful time to respond to your call of Baptism and Confirmation.

YOU CAN DO IT!
