St Therese REP Mission Statement


To help your children to grow as Disciples of Jesus in our modern and expanding world, St Therese’s Religious Education Program is committed to guiding your children to follow in the lives of faith that has been modeled for us in our church’s history by encouraging…

BELONGING: OUR LADY OF GUADALUPE
Belonging within the church family by participating in the Mass and the sacraments of Reconciliation, The Eucharist and Confirmation.

LEARNING: ST. THERESE OF LISIEUX
Learning about the life and teachings of Jesus as well as the traditions of the Catholic Church.

SERVING: ST. MOTHER TERESA
Serving others, the church and the community through the lens of faith.  

PRAYING: BLESSED PADRE NIEVES
Developing and strengthening a relationship with God through personal prayer.  Praying for our families, our community and our world.

Sacrament Programs


First Reconciliation
Students must be baptized.
The Sacrament of Reconciliation will be celebrated in January.
 
First Eucharist
Students must be baptized and have received the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
Traditionally in our diocese, First Communion is celebrated in 2nd grade as long as the child has been in religious education classes since kindergarten or first grade or is enrolled in Xavier Catholic Schools. If a child has not been in any religious education class, then they must complete 2 years of Religious Education before receiving First Eucharist.
Regular attendance at Sunday Mass with family is expected for each child preparing to receive First Eucharist.

IMPORTANT
First Communions will take place during 3 designated Sundays ONLY. Families may choose what Mass they will attend during the designated Sundays.

Confirmation
All high school students who wish to be confirmed must complete 9th and 10 grade religious education (or attend Catholic High School) and complete 11th grade Confirmation Class before requesting the sacrament of Confirmation.  
Preparation includes attending Confirmation class, 10 hours of service, attendance at the retreat, writing a letter of request to the bishop, and an interview with Father Ryan.
Confirmation is celebrated in the spring according to Bishop’s schedule.
