OPENING RELIGIOUS EDUCATION MASS - Sunday, September 20

posted Sep 17, 2020, 10:21 PM by St. Kevin Religious Education   [ updated Sep 19, 2020, 8:44 PM ]

This Sunday, the Church in the United States celebrates Catechetical Sunday, the national day that celebrates the ministry of catechesis and religious education. 
As such, the 11:15 am Mass this Sunday, September 20th, will be
celebrated and dedicated especially for the students, families, and catechists of our Religious Education Program. 
 
As we kickoff this new catechetical year, we ask you to please join together with us in the celebration of the Eucharist.  As mentioned at the Welcome Orientation, while the situation continues to improve, we know that many of you, for one reason or another, are unable to come to the parish for the celebration of the Mass.  The capacity of the church also remains limited for social distancing.  That is why the Mass is being livestreamed on the church's Facebook page YouTube channel so that everyone can participate, even if from a distance, and join together in spirit.

Please join us for our Mass via livestream on the Church's Facebook page YouTube channel: 


Our Catechists will also be commissioned in their important mission of passing on the faith to our children and families.
 
We look forward to having you and your families join us, whether virtually or at the parish, as we pray and celebrate during our opening Mass this Sunday!

Thank you, and God bless you.

Welcome Orientation Follow-Up (Confirmation)

We thank you all of our students and parents for their presence and participation in this week’s Welcome Orientation.  Although we are starting this catechetical year in an unconventional way, we are excited to begin our classes for this year, and we know that they will be wonderful and fruitful for all with the grace of our Lord and the support and cooperation of all of our families.
 
As mentioned in the meeting, we sent via email the link to the recording of the Welcome Orientation so that you can readily access and review the topics and information presented and discussed.


Your child’s catechist will be emailing you the information and the link to connect to their online class.  Please make sure to follow the instructions that they send in order to successfully join the class.  We strongly recommend that you check the device your child will be using by following the instructions and testing the link you receive prior to the class to ensure that they will be able to access and connect to the online platform.
 
Please be sure to read our
Religious Education Handbook on our website at www.stkevinrep.org, under the “GENERAL CLASS INFO” tab.  It contains all the policies that will be followed and implemented, including attendance policy, dress code, and the “ABC’s of Online Class Etiquette”.  Please remember that by signing the “Requirements and Commitment Statement” at the time of registration, you indicate that you have read, accept, and agree to abide by all the guidelines in the Religious Education Handbook.
 
Also posted on our website and available for you to download is the Confirmation “Welcome Packet” that you received at registration.  You can find it on the “CONFIRMATION” page of our website.
 
In addition, on the “
CONFIRMATION” page, you can find the “Confirmation Curriculum Outline” for each respective class day available for download.  You and your child will know exactly what will be covered during each class this year, as all of our catechists will be following the outline of lessons posted.  Also, in case your child is ever absent, you may go over the lesson with them at home.  Please keep in mind our attendance policy of no more than 5 absences.
 
As mentioned last year, please remember that your child needs to have their “Faith Fusion” textbook and the Bible that they received last year for each class.  They will be needed during the first few classes and at several points throughout the year. 
 

Information on the Confirmation Service Hours requirement is also available on the “CONFIRMATION” page of our website.  Please remember that, given the coronavirus pandemic, we know that community service is difficult at this time.  The process and procedures regarding the community service requirement will be subject to change and adjustment as things unfold.

 
Please remember to check our website,
www.stkevinrep.org, frequently for any announcements, documents, and new information regarding your child’s Religious Education class.  The website will be our primary method of communicating information to you, so please be sure to visit our website on a regular basis.  We will also be utilizing MailChimp to send periodic emails to all the families, so please be sure to check your emails on a regular basis as well.  Your email address is automatically imported into MailChimp so that you can receive our emails.
 
We have extended our registration for this year’s classes until Thursday, September 17.  If you have any friends and/or family who have not registered and want to start or continue their child’s religious education, please reach out to them and invite them to come in.  We have all the information on our website under the “
REGISTRATION” tab.
 
We and all of our catechists are blessed to be a part of this St. Kevin community and to be able to serve all of you.  Please feel free to communicate any concerns, issues, and good reports as well to either of us. 
 
Thank you, and please help us pray for a blessed and fruitful Catechetical Year!
 


God bless you.

We take this opportunity to welcome you to the beginning of the St. Kevin Religious Education Program for the 2020–2021 Catechetical Year!
 
Classes for the year begin this week.  For the first day of class, we will have our Welcome Orientation for this catechetical year, which will be virtual and take place online.  At least one of the parents MUST be present with their child(ren) at the Welcome Orientation, where you will receive information regarding what to expect as we begin this catechetical year with classes being held and taught virtually.  You and your child will also be meeting our catechists.  Please remember that attendance at the Welcome Orientation is mandatory for ALL students and parents, and your attendance at the orientation with your child will count as a class day in terms of your child’s attendance for this year.
 
Please follow the instructions you received via email to connect to the online Welcome Orientation.  We strongly recommend that you check your device by following these instructions and testing the link prior to the meeting to ensure that you will be able to access the platform.

We will open up the online meeting about 10 minutes before to give you time to login and to resolve any potential glitches. 
 
 
We look forward to seeing all of our students and parents at our Welcome Orientation!
 

God bless you
