RELIGIOUS EDUCATION

Religious education is a process that we hope will lead us to recognize that we are on a journey that begins, for most of us, as children with the Sacrament of Baptism and continues through adulthood until the moment we pass from this earthly existence to eternal life in the Lord. Religious education can help us to understand that this growing in faith is for everyone.To form someone in the faith is a lifetime undertaking; it does not end when there are no more religion classes offered.

RELIGIOUS EDUCATION
FOR STUDENTS K-10

Religious education classes are offered at St. Bridget School and St. Thomas Becket Church for children from Kindergarten to grade 10.  Children receive First Reconciliation and First Eucharist in grade 3, and Confirmation in grade 10.  Preparation for these sacraments involves 2-3 years of specialized instruction.

RELIGIOUS EDUCATION
FOR PRE-SCHOOL

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS) is a unique approach to catechesis for children, offered at Saint Bridget of Sweden Parish for children in PreK 3 & 4.

 

CGS was developed in Rome in 1954 and uses a rich Montessori approach to engage young children in age-appropriate, hands-on materials based on Sacred Scripture and Liturgy. The CGS curriculum is designed to nurture a child’s pre-existing relationship with God.

 

The children learn in a specially prepared environment called the Atrium, a sacred and special space where children engage in a process of reflection and interaction. This time spent in the Atrium allows for even the youngest child to build a deep, lifelong relationship with Christ and his Church. Materials are intentionally prepared for the children to cultivate that loving relationship and further curiosity about the divine.
