Dear RE families,
Thank you for registering your children for the Religious Education program for the 2014-2015 year! The catechists and I are preparing for another year full of blessings, and look forward to working with you in this important task.
This email is concerning the Religious Education Program for grades 1-5. All sessions are Wednesday afternoons from 4:00 – 5:30 p.m. at the Faith Formation Center. Occasionally, there are events at other times or locations, and a few times during the year the children have “off” so that the catechists can have a team meeting. A calendar for the year is attached for you. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
Here are some other important things to note:
· There is no required parent meeting this year. However, all are welcome to attend our OPEN HOUSE on Wednesday, September 10. You can drop by the Faith Formation Center any time between 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. Children are also welcome! You can meet catechists and learn more about the year ahead. PARENTS NEW TO THE RE PROGRAM ARE STRONGLY ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND. Family handbooks will be ready this evening. For those families unable to attend the open house, handbooks will be sent home the first week of class.
· FIRST CLASS SESSION is Wednesday, September 17, 4:00 – 5:30 p.m. at the Faith Formation Center (school building at Ss. Cyril & Methodius). For the first session, all children should gather in Church for an opening prayer service. Parents are welcome to stay for the prayer service. Children will be dismissed from the school at 5:30 p.m. We ask that parents or older siblings of first graders please walk them to class, and pick them up in the room afterwards.
· Please note, we will be encouraging all families to take part in the ST. VINCENT DE PAUL KARE 4 KIDS WALK as our Fall RE Service Project. Mark your calendars for Saturday morning, October 4. More information will be sent home.
· If you know of any families who have not yet registered for RE, please encourage them to do so. Registration forms can be found on our website, https://triparishfaithformation.wordpress.com/
