Religious Education

religiousedThe Religious Education Program of Mary, Mother of God Parish teaches parishioners, adults and children, about our Catholic Faith, the Word of God, and the importance of living as Jesus did. The program strives to develop a sense of belonging to the parish community. The importance of participating in parish life,  especially in the Sunday celebration of the Eucharist, is stressed. The goal of the program is to lead parishioners to the development of a mature faith that is lived out in every aspect of their lives.

The Religious Education Program consists of the following components: Religious Education Classes(CCD) for grades 1-8 are held every Tuesday afternoon and Sunday mornings; Inter-generational Catechesis sessions for students in grades 1, 2, and 3 and their families, are held seasonally throughout the year; Youth Ministry provides opportunities in grades 8-12 for students to learn and actively practice their faith through service projects and trips; the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) is the process through which non baptized persons or Christians from other denominations are received into the Catholic Church. It is also the process by which Catholic adults are prepared for the Sacraments of First Eucharist and Confirmation; Adult faith formation sessions are held occasionally through the year and focus on various aspects of scripture and themes from the Catechism of Catholic Church.
