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 changing COVID protocols with which we are now familiar. Any student and family can participate remotely at any time. This academic year will offer more opportunities for in-person classes while also expecting families to do a portion of the program at home.
Our 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 2021-22 academic year – There will be no more than 4 classes meeting at any one time. We will reintroduce in-person classes and parent meetings with K-2 meeting one week, 3-6 meeting on alternating weekends and 7 & 8th grades adding Religious Education to their Sacramental preparation classes times on Sunday evenings. Classes for K-6th grade will take place between the two Sunday Masses (this time may change within the year). Currently the timing will be 10:00am to 10:50am according to the schedule. At-home session are guided by parents and an online assessment completed by the student demonstrates a student’s progress.
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!
