Event description

Description

We have another wonderful year ahead of us at St. Andrew the Apostle and we want to invite your family to be a part of our Catechesis of the Good Shepherd. Religious Education, Edge, or Life Teen programs!

We are also excited to announce that Sacrament Preparation Registration is now built into this registration form!!!

PLEASE NOTE*

Sacrament Prep Registration is $25/child. If your child has not completed preparation for Reconciliation, they cannot be registered for the Confirmation/1st Communion Prep at the same time. Please select the quantity of children you are registering for each of the Sacrament Prep offerings. (example: one 3rd grader who was in the program last year and received their Sacrament of 1st Reconciliation- select "Confirmation/1st Communion, one 3rd grader who has not completed Sacrament Prep for Reconciliation- select "Reconciliation" only- this child will need to participate in a year of formation for Reconciliation before they receive Confirmation/1st Communion)

Below are details for each of the options for programming.


Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (COGS)

This is a profound spiritual method of religious formation for young children from 3 years of age through 5th Grade. COGS facilitates your child's basic need and capacity to enjoy the presence of God through presentations and works rooted in Sacred Scripture, Liturgy, and the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. The Catechesis is based on the conviction that God and your child are in a relationship. We believe that the growth of this relationship is directed by the Spirit of God already within your child and that each child has a deep need to experience God's presence in their lives and a special capacity to enjoy that presence.

PLEASE NOTE: Only children who have completed COGS Level I will be able to register for Level II.

Elementary Religious Education - Kindergarten - 5th Grade

We welcome all school-age children Kindergarten through Grade 5 to join us for scheduled sessions of Religious Education. Registration is required. This program recognizes the home as the first and primary experience of faith, giving parents tools to raise their children in the faith as well as leading children to an active faith-life and relationship with Christ. Students are connected to our community and faith through videos, YouTube, music, meditations, interactive games, and more.

K to Grade 3 meet in individual grade levels, for a program called "GENESIS", as they begin their “Journey of Faith” in preparation for the reception of their sacraments of initiation.

PLEASE NOTE: It is recommended that kindergarteners enroll in Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, however if you prefer to enroll them in Traditional RE, they will be added to a first grade class.

Grades 4 and 5 meet all together for a program called "THE JOURNEY" which is a unique approach to Religious Education, designed to further engage those who have already received their sacraments of initiation, and are continuing their “Journey of Faith” as newly confirmed.

Life Teen High School Ministry

St. Andrew the Apostle's Life Teen Program is a Eucharist-centered Catholic program for high school teens grades 9-12. By sharing the teachings of our Church and through powerful encounters with Christ, we help the teens grow in the knowledge of our faith while transforming their hearts to help them passionately live out the gospel by serving and loving one another. Through fellowship and open and honest discussion, we grow closer to one another and Christ knowing that we walk this journey together. Life Teen is a non-classroom model and encourages our teens to grow their relationship with Christ while preparing them to defend an authentic Catholic identity through their teen years. Every Sunday, we meet after Mass for a Life Night. These nights focus on either catechetical teachings, cultural issues teens face, or social gatherings. Teens in need of Sacraments must register for the Life teen program and then will recieve information regarding additional sessions necessary for Sacrament Preparation.
