Dear Parents,

 

I am so happy that you are here and encourage you to click on all of the Religious Education links to better understand how we can work together to raise children of faith into adults who will set the world on fire for Jesus Christ!  

 

This website will demonstrate our new and exciting religious education program at Our Lady of Sorrows.

 

As you are well aware, communication will be vital throughout the year.  I am a huge communicator through email and Remind texts.  Contact the religious education office if you need assistance signing up. Please note there is a different text set-up for Grades 1-5 and Grades 6-8. Please also check the parish website olsorrows.com and the parish bulletin regularly for announcements and information on the weekly classes, sacrament preparation sessions and special events for your child.

 
Our mission in religious education is to collaborate with parents to form a new generation of Catholics who know and love Jesus Christ and live as his disciples in the community of the Catholic Church. Toward that end, we strive to offer a unified, solid, and engaging religious education program.

 
While our children and youth will receive important formation in the parish religious education  program, the Church strongly encourages all parents to walk closely with their children as they grow in knowledge and practice of the Catholic faith.

 

  • "When they are given the dignity and role of fatherhood and motherhood, parents will eagerly carry out their duties of education, especially religious education, which devolves primarily on them." (Vatican II- Gaudium et Spes no. 48)
  • "The Christian family is the first place for education in prayer. (CCC #2694)
  • "The parish ... is called to be a fraternal and welcoming  family where Christians become aware of being the people of God....It must however, continue 'to be the prime mover and pre-eminent place for catechesis."' (General Directory for Catechesis #257)

 

With an aim to provide a faithful and engaging curriculum, religious education classes will be based on a common curriculum  approved by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) while meeting the outcomes directed by the Archdiocese of Detroit.

 

Your help of encouraging your child through this process and understanding that seeds of our faith are being deeply planted through this process will not only make this journey more beneficial for your child, but more enjoyable. 

 

If you have any questions, please do not to ask. 

 

In the Potter's Grip,
