About the Program
Saint Andrew Religious Education (RE) offers a family-centered religious education program for children K – 8 (see visual representation of the model).
The flexibility offered through this model makes religious education effective and vibrant even in the midst of social distancing protocols with which we are now familiar.
Not only does this model offer flexibility to kids and families who may have vacations, sports, grandparents to visit, etc. It has also been proven as a way of having families grow together in religious literacy and faith.
General Information: RE K-8
For the Fall/Winter of 2020 – There will be no on-site classes. Instead, parents participate in a Zoom call once per month and are then provided with the materials to have 4 sessions with their child at home during that month. An online assessment completed by the student demonstrates a student’s progress.
Depending on the status of stay-at-home orders, Religious Education will have some in-person classes offered to students starting in January 2021. These classes will meet on meet on Sunday mornings from 8:45 am to 9:50 am per the schedule.
Were excited to offer this program at our parish because of its proven approach-ability and adaptability for families. We hope you’ll join us in this journey!
