Religious Education

All children in Preschool through 5th grade are encouraged to participate in Religious Education.  We have a Youth Group for all students in 6th grade – High School.  Our program seeks to form faithful disciples of Christ and hopes to help the children of St. Scholastica and their families to grow in their relationshionships with God.  Through the study of Scripture, students are encouraged to expand their understanding of their faith and to actively participate in the sacraments of the Church.  From September through May, all classes meet Sundays from 9:45 to 11:00am in the Parish Hall.  We follow the St. Vrain valley school district schedule for breaks and do not meet the weekends that they children have no school.

Our mandatory parent meeting for the 2019-2020 school year will be held Sunday, September 8th at 9:45am.  The first day of Religious Education is Sunday, September 15th at 9:45am and will end at 11:00am. We look forward to seeing you there.  For more information on classes or class schedules, please contact the parish office at 303-828-4221 or email Laurie at REdirector@stscholasticaerie.org.

Parents are the primary educators in their children’s faith life and we consider it a privilege to assist parents in that role through our religious education program.  If you have a calling to share the faith and be a religious education teacher, please contact Laurie at redirector@st.scholasticaerie.org.
