St. Christopher Religious Education

Due to the pandemic; we need to make some changes to celebration of Sacraments and VBS

VBS- I feel that the “normal” way we do VBS; would create a situation of exposing the adults and students to unsafe conditions. We will be doing a virtual VBS. I am looking at Holy Heroes version or doing my own; the week of 6/15 through 6/19 I am participating in the Virtual one from Holy Heroes and will decide it is do-able. If not then I will come up with one of my own. I will need student volunteers either way and will be in-touch with the volunteers from previous years.

First Reconciliation will be held in the fall; we will gather in small groups to go over the instructions and preparation. Dates TBS.

First Communion- once again we will wait till fall to see when we can schedule small group gatherings and celebrate the sacrament. Dates TBA.

Confirmation – please get your forms in; if you plan to celebrate the sacrament. Once again it will be late fall when we celebrate this sacrament. Over the summer there will be chances to prepare using our virtual resources. I am trying to figure out the retreat aspect and service.

Instruction – once we figure out the school issue as to when schools are opening we will offer a modified faith formation program which includes:

  1. Faith formation in the home with a switch in resources from the gospel weeklies and the ability to pick up the resources at the beginning of the year.
  2. In person instruction with a home component- I am just working this out more to come
  3. Friday night with a virtual component if we have to PAUSE again

So please just be patient and I will be in contact over the summer
