RELIGIOUS EDUCATION PROGRAM
JOURNEYING WITH JESUS TOWARDS THE SACRAMENTS
Education, especially education in the faith is central to the Catholic Church’s mission. At Resurrection Parish, we are aiming to fulfill this mission for all children in the Parish. To that end, we have revamped our Sacramental Program.
Our program is as follows:
There are three levels of classes.
Level 1 – Reconciliation Classes – for students in grade 3 or above who have not received the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
Level 2 – First Eucharist Classes - for students in grade 4 or above who have not received the Sacrament of Eucharist.
Level 3 – Confirmation Classes - for students in grade 6 or higher grades if they have not been confirmed.
Please note there will be no classes for students in grade 5 who have already received the sacraments of Reconciliation & Eucharist.
The format of the program is as follows:
• A parent information evening.
• Commitment Mass.
• 5 Consecutive weekly classes – your child/ren can either attend a class on Tuesday OR Thursday. The content each week will be the same. This means if your child misses a class one day they can make up the class on the other day.
• Communal Celebration of the Sacrament.
Christina Krajinovic (A teacher as well as the Religious Education Leader of Resurrection Parish Primary School) will be teaching the class.
To ensure class sizes are manageable we need to allocate approximately 50% of students to each class.
Students will be given a single-page sheet with some input from that class. The purpose of this page is to stimulate conversations with you and your child/ren about this topic.
Note: Our program is for families who are registered, Resurrection parishioners. For further information including the dates for classes and celebration of the sacrament please contact the office on the number below.
