One of the great privileges of being a Catholic parent is being able to share the truths and traditions of our Catholic faith with your children. We strongly believe that as parents, you are the first and primary teachers of your children. You show them by word and example the way that we, as Catholic Christians, follow the teachings of Jesus.
The purpose of the Religious Education Program at Corpus Christi Parish is to support families as they embrace the very important task of forming the religious conscience of their children. We are here to supplement your words and your examples, and it is our privilege to do so.
It is our hope that in each of the Religious Education classes, your children will experience the following:
+ A sharing of the Gospel message of Jesus that guides us in building community and providing service to others;
+ An understanding of the love that God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit shower upon us
+ A growing knowledge of Catholic principles and Christian values that will guide their character development
+ Assistance in developing a personal relationship with God
+ Nourishment with Sacred Scripture that will deepen a knowledge of the teachings, practices, and traditions of the Catholic
faith while building respect for other faith traditions
+In the framework of a Christ centered curriculum, children will experience a variety of liturgies and prayer services, even as they attend regular Sunday masses with their families
+An appreciation of the importance of community service by participating in Food drives and other charitable activities
