St. Mary of the Assumption offers religious education and sacrament preparation classes for children in grades 1-8. While the program exists for children enrolled in public or otherwise non-Catholic education, children who attend Catholic school are welcome to register for additional catechesis! St. Mary’s School of Religion (CCD) classes are held once weekly on Tuesday evenings from 6:30 P.M. to 7:45 P.M (continue scrolling for more details).
The primary teachers and first catechists in a child’s life should always be their parent. However, sometimes we don’t always know how to answer all the questions our little ones have, or how to explain our faith to them in an organized, grade-appropriate, and pedagogical way. While it is always our job as parents to be the first to teach our children, especially about our faith, it is important and helpful, even, to receive help in guiding the faith formation of our little ones.
Building a foundation in Christ’s Church and Word while our children are young is essential to helping them learn to build a home for the Holy Spirit to dwell in for the rest of their time in school and well into their adulthood. As a parent, it’s your job to make sure that you set your child up for a future with Jesus always in the front of their minds and at the center of their entire life.
