The Religious Education program assists parents in providing for their child's religious instruction and formation. Active parent involvement and regular participation by young
people are crucial to the success of the program. Sacramental preparation programs require the participation of young people in regular religious formation; this includes preparation for the
reception of the Sacraments of Reconciliation, Eucharist, and Confirmation. All students in Grades K through 8 who are not enrolled in a Catholic school should be enrolled in Religious Ed classes at
their own parish.
OUR 2020 CCD PROGRAM: Now that we’ve navigated the start of the school year amid the pandemic, St. Joseph-St. Lawrence parish is ready to resume religious education for our children. The parish council met this week and voted to move forward with CCD. Father Francis and the parish council feel it is crucial that we provide children in our parish the most engaging opportunity to learn more about their faith and grow in that faith. We will begin with eighth grade students preparing for Confirmation. Class for eighth-graders will begin on Sunday, November 1st. Class will be held at St. Lawrence Hall following 9 a.m. Mass (10:00 -11:30 a.m.).
The next step is a plan for the remainder of the classes (1st - 7th). Those classes are projected to start November 8th. There are many items that need to be worked between now and the first day of class. First and foremost, we need to know how many students by grade plan to attend. Once we have those numbers we will know how many teachers are still needed and establish a schedule that allows for a safe environment. All classes will be held at St. Lawrence Hall following 9 a.m. Mass. However, how frequent classes meet is dependent on the number of students. Please be assured that the council will do our best to put in place precautions to provide social distancing and a clean/safe environment.
Please contact Sharon Wagner or Jason Nichols with name and grade of student(s) who plan to participate in CCD this year. In addition, please fill out the attached form (PROVIDED BELOW) and return to Sharon or Jason.
Please let us know as soon as possible, but no later than October 28th if your child/children will attend CCD this year.

Our CCD students welcome Pope Francis to America! Click here for pictures!
During the week of Pope Francis’ visit to America, the SJSL students in Faith Formation welcomed him as well. Each class had their picture taken with a large photo of Pope Francis. The elementary aged students made a puppet of Pope Francis and read about his life. The older classes discussed some Pope Facts and some of the places he visited and the Masses and ceremonies he did. Each church hall will have a framed collage of the pictures taken during this special time. They will also be available for viewing on our website.
