RELIGIOUS EDUCATION

RELIGIOUS EDUCATION CLASSES RESUMED SEPTEMBER 13TH! 

 

REGISTER YOUR CHILDREN PREK-8TH GRADE NOW!

 

The Religious Education program at Saint Ambrose seeks to foster in our youth a deeper awareness of Christ in their lives and to encourage growth in the wider faith community.

There are three sources of religious formation: family life, parish life, and formal instruction. We recognize that the parents are the first and foremost educators of their children. Their faith and their loving and trusting attitude toward God and human beings strongly influence their child’s faith.

Our program is designed to build upon and reinforce all that is positive in the family and home environment. In cooperation with parents, St. Ambrose Catechists proclaim Christ’s message and, through the guidance of the Holy Spirit, participate in efforts to develop community, lead youth to worship and motivate them to serve others.

All children who are three years old by September 1 are welcome to attend Religious Education classes, including children who attend Catholic school.  We have classes for Preschool through 8th grade (Confirmation).

Classes are held from 9:45 am -10:45 pm. on Sundays September through May.  Families may attend Mass either before or after class.

RCIA For Children is for older children who have missed sacramental preparation and RCIA is for adults who are interested in starting or continuing their faith formation journey.

PRAYER OF ST. AMBROSE

O Lord, who hast mercy upon all,
take away from me my sins,
and mercifully kindle in me
the fire of thy Holy Spirit.
Take away from me the heart of stone,
and give me a heart of flesh,
a heart to love and adore Thee,
a heart to delight in Thee,
to follow and enjoy Thee, for Christ's sake,

 

Amen


St. Ambrose of Milan (AD 339-397)
