This email is to inform you that we are offering free Parent Catechesis/Faith Formation sessions for all class days.  At this time, the sessions are being conducted in Spanish
Tuesdays 6:30 – 7:45 pm Room D
Wednesdays 6:30 – 7:45 pm Room D
Saturdays 9:30 – 10:45 am Room D

They will be informal conversations about our Catholic faith and how it pertains to your child and your family. 

The sessions will take place while your child is attending Religious Education class.  They are being offered simply as an opportunity for growth in your faith in Christ and to help you share that faith with your children and family.  It would be a great way to spend your time while you are here, and a bonus of not having to go out and come back to pick up your child, or having to wait outside in the heat! 
There is no charge, obligation, or registration involved.  Simply go to Room D after you drop off your child.  If you need assistance finding the room, let us know when you drop off your child.
May the Grace and Peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you and your family always!

Please remember that we are having our opening Religious Education Mass of the year this coming Sunday:

When:               Sunday, September 16, 2018
Time:                 11:15 am
Location:           Church
As we kickoff this new catechetical year, we are celebrating this Mass so that all the children, families, and catechists of the Religious Education Program can come together to pray and celebrate, united as one community in Christ.  Our Music Ministry choir will be singing and leading us in giving praise to God.  Students from our Confirmation classes will be participating in the various roles of the Mass.  Our Catechists will also be commissioned in their important mission of passing on the faith to our children and families.

We look forward to seeing all of you and your families at our opening Mass this Sunday!

Thank you, and God bless you.

We are excited to share that throughout the year, there will be several Masses that will be especially dedicated to the Religious Education Program.  Our Music Ministry choir will be preparing the music for each of these Masses and lead us in giving praise to God.  Students in a specific group or grade level will be assigned to participate in the liturgy as lectors, offertory bearers, greeters, etc. 
Our goal for having these Religious Education Masses throughout the year is to bring together the children, families, and catechists of the Religious Education Program to pray and celebrate, united as one community in Christ. 

As noted on the calendar you received at registration, these are the dates of our Masses for this catechetical year:
Sunday, September 16 11:15 am
Sunday, October 21 11:15 am
Thursday, November 22 11:00 am
Saturday, December 8 10:00 am
Sunday, January 27, 2019 11:15 am
Sunday, February 24 11:15 am
Sunday, May 19 11:15 am
Throughout the year, we will be recruiting students to participate in the various roles of the Mass.  We are counting on your support and assistance to make all of our Religious Education Masses a success!
We look forward to seeing you and your families at our Religious Education Masses throughout this year!
Thank you, and God bless you.

Dear Parents:
We take this opportunity to welcome you to the beginning of the St. Kevin Religious Education Program for the 2018–2019 Catechetical Year!
Please remember our classes begin this Tuesday, Wednesday, and Saturday.  Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the beginning of class.  The children will gather in the hall of the school, and their catechist will bring them to their classroom for the start of class.  Please have your child bring a pen or a pencil, and we also recommend a folder to hold any papers the catechist may give them on the first day and each class thereafter.  The catechist will let your child know if they need to bring any other supplies for future classes.  In addition, please be here on time to pick up your child(ren) at the end of class. 
Please be sure to read our
Religious Education Handbook on our website at, under the “GENERAL CLASS INFO” tab.  It contains all the policies that will be followed and enforced, including attendance policy, dress code, and drop-off and dismissal procedures.  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 First Communion “Welcome Packet” that you received at the time you registered your child in our program.  You can find it on the “

In addition, on the “

As mentioned at the time of registration, we will be confirming the First Communion Dates sometime during this month of September.  You will receive an email once they are confirmed.
