As a community of faith, we share that faith with our young people. Our program is a complement to but not a substitute for the Christian formation of children by parents in the home. In our Religious Education program, children are introduced to the Good News in the Gospel and to expressions of faith as it is lived in the Catholic traditions.
Payment plans are available, please contact the office for more information.
Religious Education Registration Form (Grades PreK-12)
This portion of our program is offered for our elementary, middle, and high school aged students. Instruction at this level is threefold: 1) Regular mass attendance, 2) Classroom lessons, and 3) Parental modeling, support, and review at home.
Thursdays@7 (Teens & Young Adults)
This is a BRAND NEW program meant for teens and young adults who are Confirmed (those preparing for Confirmation may also attend). We will have three sessions offered several times throughout the year, we will watch a movie, and discuss it and use it as a catechetical aid to teach about faith, morals, and to live how Jesus did. We will begin with some time for socializing, watch about 1/3 of the movie and then discuss it. The last session we will tie the entire lesson about the movie together.
Youth Ministry (Grades 6-12)
We meet once a month on Tues. for discussions, prayer, and to plan gym nights, movie nights, and other activities for the youth of parish. This program is open to all young adults in grades 6-12. We plan to discuss different issues that the students are interested in. In addition to our meetings, we will serve the parish and community and plan group events. In this program, the teens will continue to help set the goals and tone of the program. There is also one Open Gym night scheduled each month.
Children's Liturgy of the Word (Ages 3-7)
Christ said, “Let the little children come to Me.” We are answering that calling through the Children’s Liturgy of the Word. We will offer this program during the 10:30am Sun. Mass, twice a month on Sundays, when RE is in session. Following opening prayer, the younger members of the parish, ages 3-7, are invited to journey into the Word. This program offers them the opportunity to hear the Word of the Lord in a more familiar language and talk about what it means to them. The children rejoin their families to celebrate the Liturgy of the Eucharist.
Special Religious Development SPRED prepares those with special needs for Liturgical life. We will be hosting the 17-21 age group at St. Hugh. For more information please contact the office.
Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults & Adult Sacramental Preparation (includes Grade 12)
RCIA is a program that teaches the core of the Catholic faith to all who are interested. It is a spiritual process of prayer, teachings, discussion, and involvement in the life of the faith community, which could lead one to being baptized, received into the full communion of the Catholic Church, or completing their initiation through the sacrament of Confirmation and Eucharist. If you or someone you know would like to learn more about this process, contact the office. If you have received all of your Sacraments, but wish to learn more about your faith, you are welcome to attend.
