|Dear PK-8th Grade Families,
Below are the Parish Religious Education families, K-5th grade, and Plants & Pillars Middle School 6th – 8th grade, options for continued learning of your child’s Catholic Faith.
PREP 2nd, 3rd & 4th and Plants & Pillars 6th–8th will meet on Sundays from 12:30pm-1:50pm in the Youth Building. This includes 2nd Grade Sacramental Prep for 1st Reconciliation and 1st Communion. I am so sorry, but our only option for children who register for PK, K, and 1st, will be a home study packet.
5th Grade Confirmation students will meet on Thursdays, from 6pm-7:30pm, in Columbus Hall. In the hope of staying ahead of the projected climb in the number of those who have contracted the COVID 19 Virus, our Confirmation Mass has been scheduled for Saturday, November 21, 2020 at 11am. Following Confirmation, those Confirmed will join Plants & Pillars on Sunday, December 6th, to continue to nurture, and strengthen their newly conferred Gifts of the Holy Spirit.
Families who were registered in PREP last year, and new families that have registered with the parish are offered to register for PREP, Confirmation, or Plants and Pillars, by either an email or phone call to me for updates. All families with students who register for PREP, Plants and Pillars, or Confirmation, has the option to attend sessions or receive a home study packet. We need your choice ASAP! The cost is $40 per student with a family cap of $80.
We pray there will be an end to the COVID-19 Virus soon, but until that time, we continue to pray for all those affected by this horrific world pandemic.
