COORDINATOR OF RELIGIOUS ED
Our Religious Education Coordinator is in charge of the overseeing of the parish religious education program. The coordinator is also there to give support and encouragement to our volunteer teaching staff throughout the year. The coordinator plans and executes the religious education program. They are also available to assist the children and their families, with the meaning and the importance of living the Catholic Faith. The coordinator also supports and helps with the Youth Group, Family Liturgy Team, Vacation Bible, "Why Catholic", and Bible Study in their endeavors.
Our Youth Group Leaders work with our young adults in two groups, High School, ages 14-18, and Junior High School Group, ages 10-13. The two Groups meet once a month to discuss timely topics and to perform service projects in our local and worldwide Community. This Ministry assists in enhancing the spiritual growth and well being of our youth, and to create a better understanding of their ever changing environment.
Through creative, biblical and fun-based teaching, singing, visuals, motions, games, activities and more, your children will be actively engaged each Sunday, while developing their own relationship with God and the Church.
This program is for children aged two to six, and takes place in the lower church during the 11:00 am Mass.
VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL
Volunteers work with the VBS coordinator and children between the ages 4-9 during the summer break, in a relaxed fun filled week of songs, games, movies, crafts, and snacks with a biblical theme. Each summer, our children look forward to attending our Vacation Bible School and the many experiences in which they learn about God. They come together each year to meet new friends and reaquaint with old friends. The children love this wonderful week.
