RELIGIOUS EDUCATION AT-HOME ASSIGNMENTS AND ACTIVITIES

posted Mar 30, 2020, 10:22 PM by St. Kevin Religious Education   [ updated Mar 30, 2020, 10:23 PM ]

As classes have been suspended due to the evolving situation with the coronavirus, the Archdiocese Office of Catechesis has asked that we send via email the assignments and activities that your children are to complete at home.

An email was sent out to all parents in the Religious Education Program with information on the assignments and activities that students need to complete while classes at the parish are suspended.
 
If you did NOT receive an email from the program with your child's Religious Education at-home assignments, please email the Religious Education Office with your child's name, class day, and catechist to reled@stkevinrep.org.
 
We thank you for your support and cooperation during this time, and we continue praying for the safety and well-being of all our families.


ST. KEVIN MASSES ONLINE

posted Mar 23, 2020, 9:49 PM by St. Kevin Religious Education   [ updated Mar 23, 2020, 9:50 PM ]

Dear Parents:
 
We hope and pray that all of you are doing well, amidst the continuing situation with the coronavirus.
 
This past Wednesday, the Archdiocese of Miami issued a statement that all Masses and liturgical events have been suspended until further notice.  You can read the complete statement by
clicking here.
 
In light of this, St. Kevin will be recording Sunday Mass in English and Spanish for everyone in the parish to watch and participate.  The Masses will be uploaded online and available for viewing beginning at 6:00 pm every Saturday.  To the extent possible, we also plan to record the daily Mass in English and Spanish.
 
You can watch the Masses from the YouTube channel of St. Kevin Catholic Church by scanning the QR code above.


Or you can also click the link below:
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCTL1FinAJRr4xBiEw3HF6qQ/videos

All are encouraged to participate by watching the Mass at home and making a Spiritual Communion.
 
We hope that this will allow us to continue our worship to the Lord and our participation, though remotely, in the celebration of the Eucharist as we remain united in prayer.
 
In the near future, we will be sending out information with regards to continuing the religious education lessons and curriculum through online learning and at-home assignments for the coming weeks while we are unable to hold our classes here at the parish.
 
Thank you for your support, and may God bless you and your families.

RELIGIOUS EDUCATION CLASSES CANCELLED - Week of March 16

posted Mar 14, 2020, 10:23 AM by St. Kevin Religious Education   [ updated Mar 14, 2020, 10:23 AM ]

Under the direction of the Archdiocese of Miami, Religious Education Classes have been
CANCELLED the week of March 16, 2020.

There will also be NO CLASSES the week of March 23, 2020 for the previously scheduled Spring Break.

An email will be sent out as to when classes will resume.

Please also note that Archbishop Thomas Wenski has granted a dispensation from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass, as a result of the evolving situation with the coronavirus.

As taken from the press release from the Archdiocese of Miami:

 

We hold in prayer all those infected with the virus, their families and loved ones. We pray for the repose of the souls of those who have died. As a people of faith, we trust in the power of prayer and in the providence of our loving God; as a people of hope, we know that God will never abandon us in our need; and as a people of charity, we, despite our own fears and anxieties, stand in solidarity with all of our brothers and sisters infected or affected by this pandemic.

 

Let nothing disturb you,
let nothing frighten you,
he who has God
nothing lacks:
God alone suffices.

 

Nada te turbe,
nada te espante,
quien a Dios tiene
nada le falta:
Solo Dios basta.  
(St. Teresa of Avila)

IMPORTANT REMINDERS - Second Half of the Catechetical Year

posted Jan 19, 2020, 7:58 PM by St. Kevin Religious Education   [ updated Jan 19, 2020, 7:59 PM ]

We hope you and your families had a wonderful Christmas and a blessed start to the new year.
 

As we have begun the second half of our catechetical year, we would like to remind you of a few important things regarding the program:
 
ATTENDANCE
Please remember that if it is the first or second year of preparation for a sacrament, we allow up to five (5) absences for the year in terms of counting the year towards sacramental preparation.  There are no excused or unexcused absences.  The office may send a courtesy email to the parents to inform them of the number of absences their child has up to that point. 

DRESS CODE
All students are expected to dress modestly, in attire appropriate for class and church.   Students may NOT wear “short” shorts or “short” skirts, tank tops, sleeveless attire, gym shorts, sweat pants, leggings, ripped jeans, flip-flops, crocs, or large/distracting hair pieces (large bows, animal ears, etc.).

BOOKS / SUPPLIES / BAGS
All students need to bring their book(s) to class every week, along with a pencil or pen, and any other supplies requested by their catechist.  Also, only drawstring or canvas bags can be used to carry supplies. 


DISMISSAL PROCEDURES -- GRADES 1 to 6
Please remember the dismissal procedures for students in grades 1-6:
  • All parents are to remain in the parking lot during dismissal.
  • There will be a center area marked off by barricades.  This will be the ONLY AREA where students will be released.
  • We will announce the grade, catechist name, and room of each class as they come out.  Parents with a child in that class will come to the center area to pick up their child.
  • After picking up their child, parents will clear out the center area, and we will announce the next class.  If a parent needs to wait for another child to be dismissed, they will stand on either side of the barricades in the parking lot and wait for the class to come out.
  • Students not picked up when their class has been announced will be brought back into the school, and the parent will need to wait until all classes have been dismissed.  After all the classes have been released, any remaining students will return to the center area.
  • Should a parent wish to speak with one of the CREs, they must wait in the parking lot until after dismissal is finished.
 
We thank you for your support and cooperation.  We look forward to a great second half of this catechetical year!
 
 
God bless you.
