Religious Education

All children in Preschool through 8th grade are encouraged to participate in Religious Education.  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 11:15 in the Parish Hall.  For more information on classes or class schedules, please contact the parish office at 303-828-4221 or email religiouseducationdirector@stscholasticaerie.org.

In his pastoral letter “Saints Among Us”, Archbishop Aquila introduces the restored order of the Sacraments of Christian Initiation to the Archdiocese of Denver.  For more information, please see http://archden.org/saints/.  In accordance with this initiative, students will prepare for the Sacraments as follows:

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 religiouseducationdirector@st.scholasticaerie.org.
