Saint Joseph University Parish provides a religious education program for children from preschool through eighth grade. The men and women who serve as the children’s catechists build upon what the primary educators, the parents, have taught by word and example.
The program provides learning experiences designed to help the young people of the parish understand the Catholic Christian faith, grow personally in their faith lives, and deepen a sense of belonging to the church. Opportunities for community building through various services, projects and special liturgical celebrations are important aspects of this process.
Parishioners are welcome and encouraged to participate in the Religious Education Program by sharing their individual gifts. Ways in which adults can contribute to the faith education of our children, are:
catechist catechist aide substitute parent helper/monitor
catechist for Children’s Liturgy of the Word providing help with arts and crafts
