Religious Education Sunday Morning Program

PK-12th grade

Welcome! We welcome you to this fun, creative and caring community of faith. OLV Religious Education (OLV-RE) supports the faith formation of our parish children and families. All children who are enrolled in public or independent schools are invited to join. Our classes are led by volunteer catechists. 

OLV-RE exists to help children and families to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ. As Pope John Paul II wrote, “The definitive aim of catechesis is to put people not only in touch but in communion, in intimacy, with Jesus Christ: only he can lead us to the love of the Father in the Spirit and make us share in the life of the Holy Trinity.”

The Tasks of Catechesis

True intimacy with Christ is accomplished only when our faith is known, celebrated in the sacraments, lived, and translated into prayer. Thus, the “fundamental tasks of catechesis” are

  1. Promoting knowledge of the faith
  2. Liturgical education
  3. Moral formation
  4. Teaching to pray
  5. Education for community life
  6. Missionary initiation
    (General Directory for Catechesis #85-86)

This religious instruction and formation seeks to evoke and mature a life-long relationship with the person of Jesus Christ and the Church He founded. It endeavors to develop this relationship with Christ through the promises and commandments contained in the Gospel message, as well as through prayer, the liturgy, sacraments, and service. This effort is accomplished within the context of the parish community and the family.
