Mission & Goals of the Religious Education Program

The Religious Education Program at Church of the Assumption recognizes that the family is the primary source for the faith development of their children. Our mission is to assist families as they work to teach the faith to their children and to introduce them to the person of Jesus Christ.

We are dedicated to formation of the youth in our parish. Formation is essential to religious education. Formation enables your children to live their faith every day not just during religion class. This daily experience of formation allows our children to know that:
  • God is ever present, 
  • daily prayer makes a difference, 
  • to learn right from wrong, and
  •  to experience forgiveness.
In addition, they will come to see themselves as part of the bigger Church and to find their place in the world according to God’s will. 

 The Religious Education Program is an academic program of religious studies. Like any academic program, each year of study builds on the previous year’s instruction. Students enrolled in the program are expected to attend classes from first grade until eighth grade. 

Children prepare for and receive the Sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Eucharist in the second grade.  

Children begin preparing for the Sacrament of Confirmation in the 6th grade and receive the Sacrament of Confirmation in the Fall of eighth grade.
