Liturgical Year

Parents are the Primary Educators in the Faith of their Children

   Many documents of the church state that parents are he primary educators of their children.  While this does not mean that parents are expected to know everything about the faith, it does remind us of their primary role in the formation of the family's faith.

   Faith formation involves more than being instructed in the teachings of the church, however.  As the terms denotes, it involves being formed in the way of faith.  It is being nurtured in a wholistic way that enables children to grow into a deeper intimacy and communion with Jesus.

   The whole community vision recognizes that faith is being lived and taught at home.  Whether connected to faith "language" or not, what happens on a consistent basis in the home has far greater formational influence that what happens in a parish or school classroom an hour or so a week.

   Love, gratitude, right and wrong, thinking of others, service, and forgiveness are just a few of the faith lessons families inherently teach and live.  It is an education and formation that is "more witnessed to than taught, more occasional than systematic, more ongoing and daily that structured into periods" (General Directory for Catechesis 255).

   Our ministry as a parish - the whole community of faith - is to support this primary responsibility and activity of family life so that families can fulfill their "responsibility of training [children] in the practice of the faith" (Rite of Baptism for Children 39).  Formal religious education is offered so that children can be educated in the faith in a systematic and age-appropriate way which complements the formation already occurring in the home.

Please remember that all children in grades K-8 must be escorted into the building before class by an adult and must also be picked up after class by an adult at their classrooms. Confirmation 1 & 2 students may not pick up their younger siblings.

We follow the P.G. County school system for the closing of schools due to inclement weather or any other emergency. If schools are cancelled or close early on any Wednesday, then we will not have class on that night. Check the website at if you are unsure. We will also leave a message on our voicemail if classes will not be held that night.

Please make sure that you refer to the Religious Education Calendar and the monthly Religious Education Newsletter for any changes or additions to the regular year.
