“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. ”

What is Mission Makeover?
It is a summer program for students in middle and high school to be involved in mission work locally. The week will
provide students with the opportunity to serve others both in our parish and the local community. Some of our work
sites include Catholic Charities, North End Soup Kitchen, Community Closet, Senior Centers, parishioners homes and our parish grounds. The week will also include tons of fun with various evening activities and a fun day Friday at
a water park. Registration forms are available in the Religious Education office.
