St. Jude Parish Religious Education (PRE) assists parents in guiding their children on their spiritual journey. The program is designed for all children 4 years old through the 8th grade, and meets Wednesday 6:30 – 7:30 September to May. The Faith Formation program for 6-8th graders is called VISIONS and will meet Wednesday 6-7:30. Pre-registraton begins in the summer and is required as space is limited. If you are interested in volunteering as a catechist in our program please contact Director Kyra Niemann King at the parish office
Sacramental preparation for Reconciliation, First Holy Communion, and Confirmation is incorporated into the regular weekly PRE curriculum. Second grade is the typical age for Reconciliation and Communion, and 5th grade is the earliest that Confirmation will be conferred. If your child has missed these sacraments, or is behind in faith formation instruction, then special preparation or “catch-up” classes or home study in addition to regular classes may be suggested.
Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS) – St Jude Parish is excited to announce the beginning of a wonderful new faith formation program for young children (Preschool/Kindergarten) in a specially prepared (Montessori-based) space called the Atrium. Beginning in the Fall 2017 this opportunity will begin for all interested families. Please watch the bulletin for more information regarding registration and an open house. Are you a CGS trained presenter, or would you like to know more about becoming one? Please call the parish office to speak to Kyra for more information.
