Highlights for Religious Education

Program Highlights
SPECIAL GUESTS AT MASS: Each month we feature one grade as the special guest at the 9:00 a.m. Family Mass. Those who wish to participate can be greeters, readers, help to write the Prayers of the Faithful, and assist with the collection of canned food during the offertory. Music is provided by our Youth Choir.

BIBLE SUNDAY: Fourth graders are presented with their own copy of an illustrated, easy to read Bible which includes a reference text, chronological chart, and geographical maps.

NATIVITY REENACTMENT: Third graders are invited to participate in our Christmas Eve Family Mass by reenacting the Gospel story. One rehearsal is required, there are no speaking parts, and costumes are provided.

GOOD SAMARITAN SUNDAY: On the first Sunday of each month, children in grades five and six have the opportunity to assist with the preparation of sandwiches for local food shelters.

YOUTH MASSES: Every Sunday evening at 5:00 p.m. (during the school year) a Youth Mass will be offered and will alternate between St. John's and St. Paul's parish. The Youth Choir and musicians lead the music. Everyone is welcome to attend.

LIVING WAY OF THE CROSS: On Good Friday, children in grades four and five reenact the Stations of the Cross during the Good Friday Service at noon. One rehearsal is required and costumes are provided.
