Religious Ed (PK4-8)
ALL ARE WELCOME
It is never too late to register your child/children for Religious Education.
If you have a child or children in grades Pre4 through 8 we invite you to register them in our Religious Education program. Each and every child in our parish has a right to have their spirit nourished and nurtured. We have created a place where all our children feel welcomed and at home here at St. Josaphat. The Sunday Morning Program meets from 8:30-9:45 am. Catechists guide the children through a spiraling curriculum. A spiraling curriculum is one “in which students repeat the study of a subject at different grade levels, each time at a higher level of difficulty and in greater depth,” source: www.education.com.
Our approach in the learning environment is also based on Howard Gardner’s work on Multiple Intelligence Theory www.dmps.k12.ia.us/schools/2Goodrell/Multiple_Intelligences_diagram3.jpg, which allows each student to master the catechetical content and skills in the way best suited to them as an active learner. Prayer is woven throughout the catechetical process.
To begin the process, please download and fill out one or both of the following forms:
