Our Mission

St. Paul’s Religious Education programs are focused on nurturing our faith as well as sharing knowledge about God. We feel very strongly that parents are the primary educators of their children; therefore, our program is designed to enhance the foundation that you as parents are already giving to your children.

Our four basic objectives are interwoven in the curriculum of each grade:
• To bring every student closer to Jesus through the message of the gospels;
• To guide our children in forming values and a moral code in harmony with our Christian beliefs;
• To develop lives of prayer and worship through the Liturgy and tradition; and
• To encourage and foster a spirit of service to others in our own community and beyond.

We are preparing children for discipleship and citizenship. It is our hope that the parents and parish of St. Paul can work together in partnership to give children the knowledge and example they need to become people who give witness to their Catholic Christian faith. Participation in weekly Mass and prayer in the home are integral to the spiritual growth of children and adults. We hope that the information and teaching they receive from our program supplement what they see and do within the family.

This is our mission and it is an awesome responsibility. Please pray that together we can accomplish our objectives.

GRADES 1 - 5

Most of our classes are held on Sunday mornings from 9 am to 9:55 am at the Miles River Middle School.  We also have some classes on Monday and Tuesday afternoon from 3:30 to 4:15pm in the Church hall.

We also offer Home Study for those families that cannot attend classes. Home study is when a parent takes the responsibility of teaching his/her child at home with Grade appropriate support and materials offered by the parish.

GRADES 6, 7, 8

We are pleased to be offering the EDGE program to our Middle School students!  We meet on either Tuesday or Wednesday nights from 7 to 8:30pm in the Church Hall.

GRADES 9 & 10

Our 2-year Confirmation Journey is called ONE/8 (in reference to Acts 1:8) and is an impressive 8 month program which meets once per month on Sundays, from 4:00 pm and ends with our joyful participation in the monthly Youth Mass at 5:30p.

VOLUNTEERS

St. Paul’s is blessed with many positive role models - faith witnesses who serve as examples of what it truly means to be a Christian, a follower of Jesus Christ. We ask you to step forward to share your faith journey through any of our Religious Education Programs. We have rewarding volunteer opportunities as teachers or co-teachers, substitutes and hall monitors. On-going teacher training and support is always offered. All volunteers must fill out a “CORI” form and take “Protecting God’s Children” mini workshop.

Thank you for your prayers, support and encouragement to this Ministry and to St. Paul's Parish.

Sincerely in Christ,
