Classes begin for 262 students who are going to be at our School of Religion Program from 9am to 12:30pm for two weeks.  In these two weeks catechists cover what students otherwise get from September to the beginning of May.  It is a tall order but it is a great alternative.  The strength of the program is the students are not tired (because they are coming at the end of the day) or they have not slept 6 times since they were in School of Religion classes.  They come everyday and are better able to build on what they learned the day before.  In addition to covering a few chapters a day, they have something outside of class everyday (either a craft, church tour, music, stations of the cross, saints museum, service project).

It all begin Monday July 12 and goes through the 23rd.  Please ask them Holy Spirit to speak to the hearts of our students as well as use the catechists and aides in the classroom to help not only deepen students knowledge of the faith but also their relationship and love for Christ.
