Upcoming Calendar Events
St. Gerald Religious Education ProgramSt. Gerald Religious Education Program is for children of the parish in grades K-8 who are students of the public schools. We offer two sessions on Wednesdays beginning at 4:30 and 6:15pm. Each session runs 75 minutes divided into 60 minutes of class time and 15 minutes of community faith sharing. We begin our sessions with a Hail Mary and a prayer to our patron saint, St. Teresa of Avila.
We offer Catholic education using Sadlier books, Scriptures, Benediction, Living Rosary & prayers with two Masses for opening and closing our sessions. In the fall we will be adding a Religious Education Choir that will meet weekly between sessions. Each child's Catholic faith formation is important to us. We will also have two Religious Education Childrens' Mass during the year. We are here to serve the children of the parish and provide them with many opportunities as they grow in their understanding of their Catholic faith.
We encourage our Catechists and Aides to attend training sessions that are offered at St. Gerald and other metro area parishes throughout the year. These sessions provide the tools the Catechists and Aides can use to enhance their teaching and simultaneously assist them in their faith walk. We currently have 14 Catechists certified through the Archdiocesan training and several more in progress.
We ask for prayers and blessings for our children as they journey in their education of the Catholic faith. If you have any questions please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 402-331-1955. Thank you!
