"Let us spare no effort in the formation of our young people...to help our young people to discover the courage and joy of faith, the joy of being loved personally by God, is very difficult. But when young people understand it, when young people experience it through the anointing of the Holy Spirit, this ‘being personally loved by God’ accompanies them for the rest of their lives.”

(Pope Francis at the Cathedral of St Sebastian in Rio de Janeiro on July 27, 2013) 

The Catholic Church recognizes that parents are the first and foremost educators of their children, and your child's faith formation begins in the home. How you live your faith has a much greater impact and influence on your child than any one-hour program offered weekly in a classroom setting. In addition, attending Mass together each weekend teaches children more about the importance of praying together and the Eucharist, the source and summit of our faith, than any textbook lesson. 

The goal of our parish Religious Education program is to assist parents by offering a quality program where children can experience and further understand the importance of their gift of faith and the incredible love of the Lord. We endeavor to proclaim and teach the Gospel of Christ as found in Sacred Scripture and the Sacred Traditions of the Roman Catholic Church, and to bring awareness of the richness of those Traditions and Catholic Doctrines.

Catechists, substitute catechists, youth group helpers and classroom aides are always needed.

Please consider sharing your love of the Faith with our parish children. 

Do you want to do a good deed? Teach the young!

Do you want to perform a holy act? Teach the young! 

Do you want to do a holy thing? Teach the young!

Truly, now and for the future, among holy things, this is the holiest."

__ St. John Bosco

Catechists, substitute catechists, youth group helpers and classroom aides are always needed.  Prior teaching experience is not necessary, just a desire to help catechize our parish children (consider team teaching with a friend; it's a great way to grow your own faith relationship, while answering God's call to lead the children to Him). All catechists are encouraged to attend our Parish Leadership Retreat in September to better understand the vision for our parish programs.

As required by the Archdiocese of Denver, all volunteers who work with children must agree to a background check and complete the Called to Protect safe environment training.

For more information, please email, call, or stop by the religious education office. 

 “The definitive aim of catechesis is to put people not only in touch but in communion, in intimacy, with Jesus Christ: only He can lead us to the love of the Father in the Spirit and make us share in the life of the Holy Trinity”  (Pope John Paul II, On Catechesis In Our Time, 5)
