FAMILY RELIGIOUS EDUCATION PROGRAM

St. Thecla has a Family Religious Education Program. This involves families gathering once a month on Sunday for an hour following the 10:00 a.m. Family Mass. Each session will focus on a particular theme, such as sacraments or morality, correlated to a unit in the text. Catechists will be available to help students to begin each unit. Families will then complete the unit at home before returning the next month.

This year we will be using the series Alive in Christ from published be Our Sunday Visitor. The themes for each month will run through the entire series so that all the children in the family will be working on the same theme, but at each individual’s level of understanding. Parents will have online resources available to them should they choose to use them.

Extra classes will be scheduled for those students preparing for a sacrament. These classes will be for the students and focused specifically on the sacrament(s) to be received. These will be in addition to the monthly sessions.

This format allows families more flexibility in planning and allows parents to fulfill their role as primary educators in passing on the faith to their children.
