Religious Education News: New Catechists Needed for the 2021-2022 School Year

After a year of remote learning, Traditional Religious Education will be returning to the classroom in the fall. It’s been almost two years since we’ve welcomed new catechists to our program, and we now have many children who will need to catch up on sacramental preparation due to missed instruction time during the pandemic.

If you feel called to teach the fundamentals of our faith, share your own spiritual journey, and be a living example of our faith to the next generation of Catholics, please reach out to me at t.smyth@ascensionoakpark.com. Parents of children enrolled in the RE program will receive a 50% discount on tuition.

Becoming a catechist, classroom aide, or substitute can be a deeply rewarding experience. I look forward to discussing the various ways you can support the religious education program.
