Forming Catholic Disciples K-5th

Religious Education is much more than passing on facts of the Catholic Church ~ it is about formation. The life of every Catholic, from childhood to adulthood, is about being formed in the image of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. The process of formation is always new and never ends! One hour and fifteen minutes each week in a Religious Education classes is not enough to form us in our Catholic Faith.

Attending Sunday liturgies, daily prayer, reading Scripture and living the ten commandments is essential. The primary instruction of the Catholic family takes place at the Sunday liturgy. Living in a world with conflicting values, we need the Eucharist to help us stand firmly with one another in our faith and become the followers of Christ that we are called to by our baptism.

Parents, you are the primary educators of your children and that is why we provide Parent Education classes within our Forming Catholic Disciples K-5th (formerly called "Active Kids"). The family is the first forum in which the mission of evangelization takes place.  We ask each family to become a registered parishioner and become fully active in the life of the parish.

In order to register your children for Religious Education at St. Clare of Assisi, your family must be registered parishioners. If you are not currently a registered parishioner, we invite you to attend Come and See Sunday which is the 2nd Sunday of each month.

Please Note: This schedule is for classroom-scheduled classes on Monday evenings. We will have Family Centered Events, Retreats, Missions and Holy Days that will be on other days of the week for your family to attend during the 2016-2017 school year. Our programs are centered for your family to become fully active participants in the life of the parish.

Welcome to Forming Catholic Disciples and may our Lord bless and enrich each family to become true disciples within the community of St. Clare of Assisi Catholic Church.
