Guidelines for Religious Education are listed below:

In order to assist our students to develop what they learn of their faith and to strengthen their relationship with God, we ask parents to Reflect on this year's Expectations.

Do you attend Mass every Saturday or Sunday at Our Mother of Sorrows/Holy Cross Mission? (We have four Masses which gives us plenty of opportunities to work around our schedules.)

Do you spend time at home with your children in prayer?

Will your schedule allow you to attend one of the following options for adult faith study and prayer such as; Bible Study, RCIA, Study and Reflection, or Prayer Group? (RCIA and Spanish Adult Faith Study and Reflection are offered on Wednesday evenings, while children are attending catechetical class.) (Additional Spanish classes on Saturday.)

Can you sign up, periodically during the catechetical program, to be present in the classroom your child is attending? (Wednesday between 6:00-7:00 p.m.) Will you be able to attend the retreats, which will be offered for the children and adults during the year?




 ...is the act of handing on the Word of God intended to inform the faith community and candidates for initiation into the Church about the teachings of Christ, transmitted by the Apostles to the Church.

...involves the lifelong effort of forming people into witnesses to Christ and opening their hearts to the spiritual transformation given by the Holy Spirit. (usccb)

        The Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC 1656) states that by word and example parents are the first teachers of the faith with regard to their children. As parents, you have the awesome responsibility of helping your child form a good conscience, distinguish between right and wrong, and good and evil. It is through your efforts, that your child establishes a system of values and a code of morality. It is through your lives, that he/she comes to understand forgiveness. It is by witnessing your faith in Christ, that your child comes to know Jesus. Each family home is called a “domestic church” (CCC 1666), and as parents, you help your child understand that every single thought, word, and action is either answering “YES” to God and walking towards Him, or answering “NO” to God and walking away from Him.



and please note that attending non-Catholic churches DOES NOT fulfill your obligations.

Religious Education



"Catechesis is nothing other than the process of transmitting the Gospel, as the Christian community has received it, understands it, celebrates it, lives it and communicates it in many ways."  (General Directory for Catechesis #105) Jesus empowered the Church to continue His mission when He said, "Full authority has been given to me both in heaven and on earth; go, therefore and make disciples of all the nations. Baptize them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Teach them to carry out everything I have commanded you. And know that I am with you always, until the end of time" (Mt. 28:18-20).


This great commission has been handed to women and men, whom God has called, to proclaim the Good News. This ministry of teaching and forming has traditionally been referred to as catechesis.


The name of catechesis was given to the whole of the efforts within the Church to make disciples, to help people to believe that Jesus is the Son of God...and to educate and instruct them in this life and thus build up the Body of Christ (Catechesi Tradendae #1).


The word catechesis comes from the Greek meaning "to echo the teaching" meaning that catechesis or the teaching of the faith is an interactive process in which the Word of God re-sounds between and among the proclaimer, the one receiving the message, and the Holy Spirit! Catechesis is a life-long process of initial conversion, formation, education, and on-going conversion. Through word, worship, service and community, it seeks to lead all God's people to an ever deepening relationship with God who reveals himself in Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit.  Catechesis takes many forms and includes the initiation of adults, youth and children as well as the intentional and systematic effort to enable all to grow in faith and discipleship.
