Elementary Religious Education:
The elementary school children in grades first through fourth will continue to meet on Tuesdays from 8:00a.m to 9:00a.m. The first religion class will take place on Tuesday, September 23 from 8:00a.m to 9:00a.m. Children will go directly to the church basement on Tuesdays when religion classes are being held. Please remind your child to do this especially for the first few weeks. There will be adults outside making sure the children are arriving and leaving safely. The public school bus will transport children to the Pewamo-Westphalia Elementary School at 9:00a.m. Parents that have children attending a school other than Pewamo-Westphalia Elementary are responsible for their child’s transportation from the parish grounds.
High School Religious Education:
Although high school religious education classes have returned to Monday nights, the year will begin on Sunday, September 21 from 3:00p.m to 6:00p.m in the church. The afternoon will begin with prayer and a powerful presentation from a recent college graduate who resides in Grand Rapids. The presentation will focus on the challenges that young people face in their walk towards Christ and ways to counter them. A Grill Out and a time of fellowship will follow. Regular class times will be held on Monday evenings from 7:30p.m to 8:30p.m beginning Monday, September 29. A full schedule will be made available soon which will include both class times and events.
