Passing on our Catholic faith to the next generation takes more than one hour a week in a classroom. It has to. It is Mass. It is Service. It is relationship building. It is COMMUNITY! Our Religious Education program is much more than text book learning-we offer a number of ways for your child to LIVE their Catholic faith every day beyond the classroom-it truly is Ministry to our Youth.
Through powerful Eucharistic encounters and engaging catechesis, our students are immersed in a dynamically Catholic parish culture. With the parish as their true home, our students are then further strengthened by our Summer Mission Trips to Catholic Heart Work Camps around the USA ,Totus Tuus Summer Programs, student and family events and opportunities to SERVE in the Oshkosh community, solid, Diocesean approved resources, and digital evangelization. Our goal is not only to create an environment where Catholic students feel supported but engaged the other 167 hours a week, outside of Sunday mass and religion classes.
Every day of the year, around the globe, in elegant and massive cathedrals and in small and humble chapels, we the Church gather to celebrate and be formed by the Eucharist. Mass is “the heart and summit of the Church’s life” (Catechism of the Catholic Church. N.1407). Attending Mass is the single most important act that we as Catholics engage in and its importance is magnified when setting an example for our youth.
There are a number of opportunities beyond our Parish setting for students to develop their faith! Catholic Youth Expeditions, Youth Day, March for Life and more! Check out the Diocese of Green Bay web site for additional information
