St Ann/St Brendan Religious Education 2020-2021
Classes begin Sunday, October 18th
Grades 1 to 6 (Note* First Communion preparation begins in the First grade)
Due to the current COVID-19 guidelines and safety protocols we have shifted our approach to religious education. This year we will offer a Family Centered Religious Education Program (FCREP) for grades 1 to 6 continuing to use the Gospel Weekly Lectionary based program. FCREP is a unique way of providing religious education to students at home with parents as the Catechist. This program promotes the belief that parents are the first and best teachers of their children. We are hopeful and confident that this different delivery method will benefit students and their immediate and extended families and help to nurture the domestic Church during the pandemic. It is our hope that we will return to in person learning when the COVID 19 restrictions are lifted.
As registrations are still coming in, we will be holding a Parent Meeting on Tuesday, October 13th at 7PM at St Brendan's upper church for parents to come and register their children (if they haven't already) and then learn more about the specifics of the program and also become familiar with the preparation process for those children making their First Reconciliation and First Communion.
