Sunday Catechist Lead Traditional Instruction Grades 1-7

 

Registration for the 2021-2022 Religious Education year will begin SOON.

St. Joseph PREP is a religious education program option for all parish children in Grades 1 through 7 that do not attend a Catholic Elementary school.

The Sunday morning Religious Education program will be an in class, catechist lead program utilizing Pflaum Gospel Weeklies.  The content of the program flows from the Sunday Gospel and children learn their faith within the rhythms of the liturgical year – Advent, Christmas, Lent, Easter and Ordinary Time.  The Sunday liturgy is the heart of the parish community.  With this program, every lesson goes home to involve parents (who hear the same Gospel on Sunday) making it easier for them to discuss topics with their children.  Your whole family can easily share in the learning because all children are studying lessons based on the same Gospel proclaimed in church on Sunday.  You can gather all your children at one time to share what they have learned and to talk about it as a family.

Resources for families include The Gospel at Home, which is a weekly summary of the Sunday Gospel and suggestions for you to use at home. These are all at the Pflaum Gospel Weeklies website.  See quick links below.
