Religious Education Middle School Program for Grades 6-8

This critical ministry continues the tradition of instructing our children in the fundamentals of faith, doctrine, tradition, and scripture as we try to bring each child into a closer relationship with Jesus Christ. The focus is on experiencing Christian community in our liturgies, in class, and through community outreach. Men and women of faith who enjoy working with children are invited to share their faith as catechists.  St. John’s offers both traditional classroom instruction as well as a Family Cluster model.

We have updated the St. John’s Middle School (Grades 6-8) Religious Education program in an attempt to deliver lessons more effectively to Middle School students. The program will include six (6) activity based on-site activities (classes), which will take place on Sunday mornings from 10 – 10:45 am, coupled with an on-line learning component. The on-site classes are optional – if you want your child to complete the Middle School curriculum but they cannot attend the morning classes they can participate via the online modules.

We encourage our Middle School students to attend Mass regularly and will be asking them to participate in the Family Mass immediately preceding their on-site classes. The on-site classes will include fun games, interactive exercises and thought provoking activities to excite and entertain Middle School students while they learn about their faith, particularly in terms of the Liturgy.
