Religious Education Program Information

3 years old through 6th grade

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is held on Sunday mornings from 9:15-10:15 in a child-sized Atrium built for a hands-on learning experience of Jesus and a deeper understanding of the Mass. It is a space where the children are given time to listen, wonder, work, pray, sing, and talk about God. Our adult catechists and helpers don’t teach in the traditional sense. Instead, they journey with the children in discovering the awe and wonder of a loving relationship with the Good Shepherd Jesus.

Ready for a fun and faith-filled experience. The name comes from the Biblical truth, You are made in the image and likeness of God, and that makes you a BIG DEAL! Our Wednesday evenings generally consist of a meal, group fellowship with games, song, and worship, and a breakout into small groups for a more intimate encounter with the Lord.  We also have trips/events and retreats on some weekends.  We work to offer our students as much of a variety of ways to experience Jesus as we can.

Big Deal Youth Group Wednesday Evenings 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm (7th to 12th Grade) — Please note the time change for Big Deal Youth Group.
