Parish Religious Education is important for children because that is where they make their first connections between the Catholic faith and their identity as people called to that faith. It is where they first encounter, in a significant way, their companion members of the Body of Christ, and where they begin to understand what it means to belong to a community of believers. And it is where they begin to learn that God is bigger than – but at the same time deeply a part of – their own families. ”
Does my child need Religious Education by Larry Livingston; Liguori Publications, 2004
