The process of formation is the responsibility of everyone in our parish: priests, staff, ministers, parishioners as sponsors, godparents, volunteer catechists, and especially parents sharing our faith by doctrines of our Catholic faith, prayer experiences, by telling our witness stories about God’s love in our daily life. Using questioning and answering techniques, media, group sharing and other activities, that’s really what happens in religious education! It doesn’t happen overnight, or in one year, but rather in a gradual process over years of a child’s maturing toward an adult catholic understanding.
Preschool through eighth grade students attend sessions on Sunday mornings at Gate of Heaven at 10:00 A.M. and at Our Lady of Victory at 9:15 A.M. High School students can teach and aid in the program.
If you have children these ages and would like to enroll them, please see the registration form. Please call Amy (OLV) at570-639-1535 x 209 or Jim (GOH) at 570-675-2121 x 103 They will be happy to discuss the program with you and answer any questions you may have. Also, if you would be interested in teaching or being a teacher’s aide in the program, please do not hesitate to contact them. We will gladly “show you the ropes” and keep you current on your theology for those who have never taught.
