St John XXIII is blessed with an established and vibrant program offering religious education to over 300 young people a year in our community. They say faith is ‘caught’ and not ‘taught’, and as a parent you are without doubt the most influential model for your child.
The learning in the RE classes aims to supplement what your child learns from you and from regularly attending mass so they can approach adulthood with a sound spiritual framework.
The overall program is organized and managed by the Religious Education Committee which includes our priest and meets monthly. These meetings are open and anyone involved in the Programme is welcome to attend.
The Religious Education Co-ordinator Jane Gannon and the REC committee manage and coordinates the program. The RE Co-ordinator can be reached Monday to Friday (except Wednesdays) from 9:00 – 11:00 at 022 919 19 34 alternatively, you can send us an email at email@example.com to Religious Education or using our contact form.
The RE program is a completely volunteer led programme running on the collective efforts of parent and non-parent volunteers. Naturally classes can only be offered when we have volunteer Catechists and Assistants stepping forward to teach our children.
There are many ways parents who enrol their children are asked to participate. The Catechists and Year Level Co-ordinators are naturally the backbone of the program supported by the Assistants who give invaluable classroom help.
Those who are having difficulties with the online registration system can call the Parish Office during office hours or can send an email to our database administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
