2020-2021 1st and 2nd year Confirmation preparation programs

All the 1st and 2nd year Confirmation preparation sessions (grades 8 and 9) will only be offered in a virtual format for the 2020-2021 school year. This decision was not made lightly, but out of concern for the safety of all the candidates and adults participating in the program.

The virtual format will be structured as a small discussion group experience comprising parents and their Candidate. Discussion questions will be provided based on the videos along with a workbook and other activities. The sessions will take about an hour to completed at home and can be worked on sometime during the time period indicated on the schedule.

Remember, 2nd year Candidates are not required to “re-register” for the program and will be using the same workbooks as last year. However, they must attend one of the Zoom meetings above to understand the process used for the 2020-2021 program.

2020-2021 after school Religious Education Sessions – grades 1 to 7

All after school religious education class sessions for grades 1 to 7 will only be offered in a virtual format for the 2020-2021 school year. This decision was not made lightly, but out of concern for the safety of all the children and adults participating in the program.

The virtual format will be structured to provide a classroom experience with feedback questions to be completed by the students and an optional opportunity to record their thoughts, prayers, and/ or reactions to the material presented. Each lesson should only take about 45 minutes to complete sometime during the week as indicated on the schedule.

Registration will be offered online this year. The process will involve requesting the registration form by email (see below*), downloading the registration document (a word doc.), filling it out on a laptop, and sending the document back via e-mail to <religiousedolr@gmail.com>. When the registration form is sent, a return email will be sent out indicating it was received with information about workbook pick up. Workbooks will be available for pickup on certain days, times, and places. This information will be sent out when finalized because of the precautions needed to be put in place.

*Please request the registration form by email using the <religiousedolr.gmail.com> email address. Also, please indicate your families last name and contact phone number in the message of your registration form request. This information is necessary for security reasons.
