Welcome to the Religious Education part of our parishes web site. If you have questions, suggestions or problems please feel free to email me at : email@example.com. Another year of religious
education has arrived and excitement is in the air. There are many things that
we have planned, and we are looking forward to putting faces to our roster.
We must remember to keep our
enthusiasm now and throughout the year. This is important because our students
need to know that a relationship with God is invigorating and worth pursuing.
They need to see that walking with God is not only exciting but it can give
renewed energy and a more fulfilling outlook on life. We keep this enthusiasm
by connecting to hope.
God wants us to encourage our
students to let their lights shine. We are sent to help them discover how they
can brighten the world through their gifts and talents. So we must allow all of
our lights to shine together to help bring the world out of darkness. This task
also includes the parents, who must stay involved in their children’s work so
they can partner with the catechist in helping the students’ light to shine.
So when it comes to this new
catechetical year, let us remember these things, get ready for a great year,
and pray for a fruitful and grace- filled year.
