Mission: The Parish Religious Education Program aims to help both children and parents grow in knowledge of their Faith and in communion and intimacy with Jesus Christ through word and sacrament. Religious instruction is based on the six tasks of Catechesis: CREED, LITURGY, MORALITY, PRAYER, COMMUNITY, and MISSION. Devotion to Mary, our Mother and our Model, is an integral component of our Faith Formation Program. Like Mary, who was filled with God’s grace, we strive to become living examples of Jesus, her son.
Well-trained Catechists share the teachings of Jesus Christ in such a way that the child comes to know about and believe in God and is transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit. Sacraments Preparation for Reconciliation, Eucharist, and Confirmation is an integral component of the program. At St. David Parish the Sacramental Levels are Level 2 for First Penance & First Eucharist and Level 7/8 for Confirmation.
A NEW PLAN for PREP classes from K to Level 8 was developed for 2020 – 2021 due to recent COVID safety guidelines. Small In-person classes, with social distancing and other safety precautions, as well as Homeschooling with textbooks and on-line resources provided are available. Please read the information attached above and contact Sr. Kathleen (info above) if further clarification is needed.
