The Church on making disciples

Guarding the deposit of the Faith is the mission which the Lord entrusted to HIs Church...and which She fulfills in every age. The Church's apostolic and pastoral mission is to make the truth of the Gospel shine forth to lead all people to seek and receive Christ's love which surpasses all knowledge. (From Fidei Depositum by Pope John Paul I after the Second Vatican Council)

Christ sent his apostles so that repentance and forgiveness of sins should be preached in his name to all nations. "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit." The mission to baptize, and so the sacramental mission, is implied in the mission to evangelize. (From the Catechism of the Catholic Church, Article 2, Section 3, Paragraph 1122)

Religious Education (CCD)

The Religious Education Program runs from Pre-Kindergarten through to the twelfth grade. Pre-Kindergarten and First graders begin with basic instructions of our Catholic Faith. Second graders prepare for the reception of the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist. Third through Fifth grade students will continue deepening their knowledge of the Catholic Faith in their intermediate years prior to the Sacrament of Confirmation.

Preparing for the Sacrament of Confirmation is a process. Sixth graders focus on the study of the Bible (Sacred Scriptures). Seventh graders participate in a deep focus on the Study of Christ (Christology). At the Eighth grade level, students concentrate on the Holy Spirit and the Sacrament of Confirmation.

Registration for each year of Religious Education typically occurs in the month of June. Classes are held Sunday morning and Monday evening, with special events throughout the year, such as Summer Bible School.

Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA)

RCIA presents the teachings of the Catholic Church, offers spiritual support, and prays for adults discerning their call to come into full communion with the Church by preparing for the Sacraments of Initiation. It is also a wonderful way to revisit the religious education you received in the past.

Weekly meetings are held here at St Elizabeth Ann Seton. Parishioners are needed as team members, sponsors and prayer partners. Participating in RCIA will help you to grow in your faith as you help others grow in theirs.
