RELIGIOUS EDUCATION NEWS


CATECHISTS MEETING – A meeting of the Catechists for St. Joseph Religious Education Program will be held next Sunday, August 2, following the 8:00 a.m. Mass, 9:15-10:30 a.m. in the Parish Social Hall, with Social distancing and masks.

WE ARE STILL IN NEED OF TEACHERS (Catechists for grades 2, 9, and 10.)  Nick Lovrich has volunteered to teach grade 9, however we need a substitute for him during the Football Season.  Any takers?

WE WELCOME ANYONE WHO WOULD LIKE TO VOLUNTEER TO BE A SUBSTITUTE TEACHER  (Catechist) for any grade level. Substitutes are valuable for keeping our Religious Education moving forward during that time when a Catechist is ill or may be traveling. 

PARENT BOARD FOR RELIGIOUS EDUCATION – We would like to establish a Parent Board of 12 or more members to assist with the efforts to keep our Religious Education program growing and to keep our children involved in the parish.  Any Parent who would like to be involved in this ministry or any of the ministries above, should contact Sr. Linda as soon as possible.  934-0699.  Thank you in advance. 

REGISTRATION FORMS FOR ALL GRADE LEVELS FOR RELIGIOUS EDUCATION can be found on our Website. We would like to have all children and teens complete a new registration form so that we are able to update our files. Children entering First Grade can also find a registration form online, complete it and turn it into our Church Office.  

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR FIRST COMMUNICANTS – Seven children from our parish will make their First Holy Communion at a special Mass celebrated at 12:30 p.m. on Sunday, July 26.  Please keep them in your prayers.  We are very proud to welcome to the Table of the Lord for the first time: Lucas Gonzalez, Sara Kraft, Kiera Pennington, Blake Shura, Elizabeth Shura, Conner Stere and Jacob Wallace.

We thank Paul Krug for volunteering to take their pictures.  We will display them in the church as soon as they arrive.
