Dear Parents: During this time of no face to face religious education, I will be sending you resources for things you can do with your children at home as a family. Diocese of Davenport Iowa website Office of Faith Formation and click on Faith Formation There are many resources listed there for your use as a family. On the Diocesan website I would suggest you look at “The Religion Teacher” by Jared Dees. He has a Lenten section called “Take Up Your Cross” that would be very good for right now. He also has Bible stories, the Sunday Gospels, and Saint information on his website. Loyola Press also has a site called “Family, Fun, and Faith” which offers some free activities. Our parish also subscribes to “formed.org” Parish Access Code: RAXJWJ This website has many resources of books and movies available for use. There are children’s videos there on several topics. Let us continue to pray for each other and all of those affected by this virus. Stay Safe! Sincerely, Sister Peggy

The 'domestic church', family, is the first teacher of our children to a relationship with God and understanding their Catholic faith. Religious Education continues that teaching in a classroom setting. Children, First - Eighth graders, are taught what it means to be Catholic Christians, our traditions, teachings, and beliefs. The children are prepared for the Sacraments of Reconciliation, First Holy Communion, and Confirmation. Classes are held throughout the school year and meet at McAleer Hall on Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m. For more information, or to register your child(ren), please call Sister Peggy, 372-2127.
