Religious Education Registration
We welcome you to Prince of Peace Parish Religious Education program! We are happy and privileged to have the opportunity to work with you and your family on your faith journey. If you have any questions please call the parish office.
Satisfactory completion of each grade level is required in order for our children to be adequately prepared to receive their sacraments and grow "to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ" (Eph 4:13).
The Sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Eucharist are traditionally celebrated in Grade 3. According to Archdiocesan regulations, completion of First and Second Grade courses is a prerequisite for entry into the Sacramental Program for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist. If you are requesting these Sacraments for your child who has not had the required preparation there is a process in place to have them make up the preparation work, but please know that their Sacraments will be delayed past Grade 3.
The goals of Prince of Peace Parish Religious Education Program are:
† Ongoing conversion to Jesus Christ and the Gospel.
† Full participation in the life of the Catholic Church.
† To foster community among the children, their families and the larger parish community.
† To teach our children to be good stewards of the gifts God has given them, by using those gifts in their families, parish and community.
Parents are the primary religious educators of their children. They serve as models for their children. From the earliest years of a child’s life, a parent’s values are more caught then taught. Young children often imitate their parents. We are eager to work with parents and assist you in the faith development of your children. We encourage parents‘ participation and cooperation in the following ways:
† Celebrate Sunday Mass regularly with your children/youth. Talk about the Sunday readings and homily and what they mean to you.
† Participate actively in the sacramental and community life of the parish. Get involved in community service with your family.
† Establish family rituals and celebrations. Bless your children. Pray with them. Help them to memorize the traditional prayers of the church.
† Attend parents meetings, workshops, and adult enrichment programs.
† Familiarize yourself with scheduled catechetical sessions and events for your children/youth in the parish
† Enthrone a Bible in your home and display other religious symbols.
