When we think of education, we think of children. In the words of St. Jerome, "Ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ." Religious Education is for all people who want to grow to know, love and serve God. Below are different programs and opportunities for children and adults.
RE at St. Joseph's
Introducing Family Night!
Religious Education is not just for kids. Family Night is an opportunity for everyone to learn and grow in their faith. On the fourth Sunday of each month, starting in October, we will have a family night following the Sunday Mass. Those who have kids will work on projects as a family. Those who do not have kids will get together with other families and work on a project together. Let's have some fun exploring our faith!
All kids are welcome to join us for RE following each Sunday Mass. We will meet from 2:30 to 3:30 each Sunday.
Do you want to grow in your faith? Would you like to be inspired in a new way? Then come to Family Night! Every 4th Sunday as part of our parish potluck we will gather to eat and then work on a faith activity together. This is a chance to meet new people, learn something new, and have some fun.
Need an avenue to explore your faith? Look no further than our free online database of Catholic stuff. Formed comes with audio books, books, movies, TV programs, programs and Bible studies and more. Did I mention that its all free? The parish subscribes to the program so that you get everything for free. Contact Fr. Cody for more details about signing up.
The Interior Castle
Last Spring, Fr. Cody created an interactive version of St. Theresa of Avila's major spiritual work The Interior Castle. For those of you who could not venture through the castle, Fr. Cody created the following video so you can experience a piece of the adventure. Below is a link to a document that further explains the rooms.
