Religious Education Handbook
Kindergarten – 8th Grade
Parents and Students to St. Williams/St. John Religious Education Program.
Your involvement in teaching your child about the catholic faith is very important. One day a week isn’t enough to help your child learn and retain the information.
Parish Mission Statement
As witnesses to the Gospel of Jesus Christ we are called to be a faith community reaching out to all ages in prayer, fellowship, stewardship, education and service.
The St. William/St. John Religious Education Programs are designed to support our Parish Mission
To help defray the cost of the materials and books, each family is asked to pay 50.00 for the 1st Child, then 10.00 for each child after.
***If this is a financial burden on the family then adjustments can be made by seeing Fr. Hils or Suzi Noel, the coordinator of religious education.
No child will be denied Religious Education because of finances.
Each year a special theme is chosen to create a fun way to teach the kids about our faith. This year the theme is
God’s Secret Agents
Searching for the Truth
- Classes start at 9 am. Please be sure to have the students there on time.
- Class ends at 10:15. Please pick up your child for grades K-2 at their classroom.
- If the student is absent please see the teacher for makeup work.
