Welcome from the
Religious Education Director
Thank you for stopping by to look around the Religious Education program at Our Lady of Sorrows.
Whether you have been part of the program for a while, or are brand new to the parish, I welcome you to explore and let me know if you have any questions.
Our after-school program is just that. After school. Students meet one day per week from September - May for 1 hour and 30 minutes. We use Pflaum Gospel Weekiles, a lectionary-based (follows the Sunday readings) resource, to share the message of Jesus Christ with your children and family. Our outcomes are directed by the Archdiocese of Detroit.
We strive for our students to Encounter, Grow, and Serve Jesus Christ. This is done by assuring our students have mastered the standards and know how to apply them to become a band of Joyful Missionary Disciples. It is my goal that our catechists continue their education to become the best they can be in sharing the Love of Jesus with their students. In addition, it is my goal that religion is not just another class the students attend after being in school all day, but rather an opportunity to meet Jesus through real-life relevant experiences and truly know how much he loves them and wants them to love and share his story with others.
If your child desires Baptism, First Eucharist, or Confirmation please be sure to read the section on Sacraments to better understand the process.
I look forward to walking alongside your family as we together work together to develop disciples of Jesus Christ.
In the Potter's Grip,
Mr. Greg Crachiolo
Director of Religious Education
