Welcome Letter

Dear Parents:

Welcome to the Immaculate Heart of Mary Religious Education Program

The religious education of your children involves not only handing down an organized set of religious beliefs, but also initiating the children into the faith, attitudes, and values of our Christian Community.  On the day of your child’s Baptism, you accepted the role of being your child’s first teacher, a very difficult job in itself.  But please remember you are not alone.  You are being supported by the priests, catechists, and the entire parish community. 

Our Religious Education Program offers instructions to students in elementary, middle, and high school who are members of Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish.  We offer a nine-year course of study in which all Catholic children attending public and private schools are expected to participate.  Courses continue through the four years of high school and all are encouraged to attend.  Our program offers the opportunity for students to prepare for the reception of the three sacraments, Confirmaton, Eucharist and Penance.  Our aim is to provide a loving and caring Christian atmosphere in which students can grow in sound Christ-like attitudes and values. 

We hope this website will help you understand more about our program, and give you some insight into the wonderful experiences your children will have when they come to class on Monday or Wednesday. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to call the Religious Education Office, e-mail us, or just stop in. 

Sincerely,
Mrs. Diane Meade
Coordinator
