From the Desk of the Pastor
Jesus said, “Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.” Mt 28:19
We have it from none other than Jesus himself to “make disciples … to baptize … and to teach … all that I have commanded you.” Here at St. Paul Catholic Center, we take this command of the Lord very seriously. Ultimately it is the responsibility of parents and godparents to form their children in the faith, but the parish also has an important role to play.
Our 2016-2017 Religious Education Program Guide is for parents to help them understand the wide variety of religious education programs for children and high school youth offered at the St. Paul Center. It is not intended to be an exhaustive description of each program, the goals and objectives, but instead presents a synopsis of the curriculum, the age level, meeting times, program costs and the contact information.
I hope you find this guide helpful as you carry out your responsibility to form your children in the Catholic faith. May God bless you and your children as you carry out all that the Lord commanded.
With fond best wishes,
