Mark Your Calendars!
August 1, 9, OR 17, 2022
All parents/guardians with children registered for PREP this fall (in-person classes AND homeschool instruction) are asked to attend a parent orientation of the new curriculum we purchased for the upcoming year. Please choose ONE evening from the dates above that best fits into your summer schedule. We will meet at the Hall from 6:30-7:30 to preview the website, distribute student textbook(s), and receive access codes for the Loyola Press resources.
If your child misses a class due to illness or inclement weather, the family will rely on these online resources to MAKE-UP the instruction at home. Your child will receive a quiz score after answering 10 questions at the end of every lesson. Parents/guardians will forward this score to the DR and be given credit for completion of the current grade level content. These meetings replaces the customary meeting on the first night of classes.
Registration for the 2022-23 PREP year is now open. Classes begin on Monday, September. 12 at 4:30 at the Church. No registration will be accepted after September 30, 2022. You can register online here. A hard copy may be printed from the link by navigating to the PREP page on our website.
Please include the grade that your child will be entering in next school year and whether you intend to homeschool or send your child to in-person classes. Payments may be made by check or through ParishGiving.
Confirmation is March 12, 2023
If your middle schooler attended Camp Caritas on June 20-24, 2022 please submit a copy of his/her certificate of completion electronically, personally, or by US mail. The DRE will give each camp participant credit for completion of the 2022-2023 PREP year without the need to attend weekly instruction.
All other Confirmation candidates must be homeschooled. Parents will participate in the curriculum orientation meeting mentioned in the post entitled “Mark Your Calendars”. Parents will be surveyed to determine dates that work around school and family commitments .
In order to prepare for the Sacraments, parents are asked to register their Confirmation candidate for 5 in-person meetings to study Confirmation and the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Please submit a PREP registration form and $90 to cover the cost of the five evening sessions and Confirmation fee.
Overwhelming Volunteer Response!
Thank you to the many volunteers who answered the call to be PREP aides and hall monitors. We still need 1 catechist for level 4.
Children’s Liturgy of the Word
Our preschool and primary level children need catechesis too. We plan to resume this ministry to our 3-10 year olds when the PREP year begins in September. Are any parents interested in teaching or assisting for 15 minutes during the 9:30 Mass readings and homily, please contact Linda Riofski at 610-268-0296
