Saint Pascal Parish Family-Centered Catechesis Religious Education Program Now Enrolling For The Fall
If you are looking for ways for your family to explore our Catholic faith, opportunities to share your faith with your children, and chances for your family to share in engaging and creative lessons about the Church and what we believe, then join us this year as we explore The Saints: Our Friends in Faith in our Family-Centered Catechesis Program.
This program is for all families with children in Kindergarten through eighth grade. Families gather for monthly sessions on either a Monday evening or a Saturday morning and then complete lessons at home that reinforce the theme of the month. Further information and registration materials are available at www.stpascal.org or by calling Christopher Perez or Sharon Kells, the Director and Assistant Director of Religious Education, at 773-725-7641, ext. 222.
