Religious Education Grades 1st – 8th

2022-2023 Religious Education Calendar

Parent Letter 

8th Grade Parent Letter Aug. 2022

A diocesan standard curriculum was approved by Bishop Walkowiak and is now being implemented to incorporate evangelization with catechesis in Catholic schools, and in religious education programs like ours in all parishes of the Grand Rapids Diocese.

Three Parts of a Whole
The Curriculum Framework is structured to be comprehensive in scope. There are three parts to the diocesan framework: Encounter, Grow, and Witness. The Lord longs for each student to encounter him, to grow as his disciple, and to serve as a witness of the Gospel in his/her family and community.

Our Religious Education program is offered to students in First through Eighth Grade.

Grades 1st – 6th: Wednesdays, 5:30 – 7:00 p.m.
