Religious Education at Saint Rose

The Goal of Religious Education at Saint Rose

Saint Rose has two goals for the Religious Education program:

• Religious Education families attend Mass together every week.
• Parents embrace their role as primary educators of their children's faith.

Religious Education (PSR) at Saint Rose

Saint Rose offers at home family based religious education for students in grades one through eight, and this includes preparation in grade two for First Reconciliation and First Communion and in grade eight for Confirmation. Families with children in grade two or eight attend parent meetings that provide additional information and support to assist parents of children in sacramental years.

Family based religious education in the home empowers parents to assume their primary responsibility to form their children in the Catholic faith by teaching in their home. Parents will receive support to do this with the assistance of grade level catechists and the religious education office.

Work completed by their child is e-mailed to the religious education office.  Families attend Family faith formation sessions together, which provide parents and students the opportunity to worship together, share a meal, and learn about our faith together.

Children will also continue to take part in Children’s Liturgy of the Word (for students in Grades One - Four), Reconciliation at Advent and Lent, Retreats at Grades Two and Eight, and May Crowning.

Volunteer Opportunities

It takes a partnership between parents and the parish to raise a child in the ways of faith!  We are always in need of practicing Catholics to serve as faith-filled witnesses to the faith and serve as catechists who support parents in their effort to teach their children at home. Please contact Patty Russo for information on how to get involved!

Sunday Formation

Children's Liturgy of the Word for children in Grades 1 to 4 is offered three Sunday’s a month during the 10:00 a.m. Mass.  Children in these grades have the opportunity to learn about the readings and Gospel proclaimed at Mass that is geared to their age level.  There is no cost for your child to participate in Children’s Liturgy of the Word.
