The Religious Education Program is committed to serve families in developing and nurturing the whole child to achieve a genuine Christian Way of Life. The Program provides a safe, Catholic environment in which each child can grow to be the person God intended. The primary goal is to build a Christian Community of Faith in which children can grow up knowing, loving, serving God and neighbor. The RE Catechists facilitate learning experiences which have as their aim the education of the whole child. Our Catechists exercise a ministry of Christian Education and are sincere about being certified teachers. Preparation of First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion is under the Director of Religious Education for both RE students as well as St. Philip Neri students grades Pre-K through 6th Grade.
Thank you to all who are getting their students here on time and in a safe manner. Please give yourself plenty of time to park and bring your child(ren) into the school hallway. If you have older ones, you can drop them off at the end of the sidewalk in the South parking lot. Please, do not drop children off in the street, especially in the lane opposite the building. Please, do not drop children off or pick up children in the driveway. Classes start as 8:15 a.m. Mass ends and classes end in time for 11 a.m. Mass. The drive way needs to be clear for the use of the elderly and handicapped parishioners to drop off and pick up. Please respect these rules for the safety of all parishioners.
It is that time of year when it may start to get chilly out. I know it doesn’t seem like it yet! Weather updates will be on the local news outlets. So, if there should be a cancellation of class due to inclement weather, it will be posted on those channels (KFOR, KOCO, KWTV, KOKH, and NewsOK.com).
You are the model for your children and their spiritual life. If you show that it is important to get to Mass and get to class, they will be more engaged also. We all want to feel the joy of the Lord.
God Bless and see you Sunday!!
