Religious Education 2014-2015
Religious Education classes continue at 3:45 PM or 5:45 PM for PS – 8th grade. The Preschool and Kindergarten program is ALLELU! The 1st – 6th grade classes are using Alive in Christ. The 7th grade will be using The Theology of the Body for Middle School and the 8th grade will be using a Thematic program, including topics on The Church, Revelation, Sacraments and The Kingdom of God.
Teens in high school, especially if you have already been confirmed, YDisciple is for YOU! YDisciple is not a program – it is an apprenticeship in the Christian life. YDisciple aims to:
- Connect adolescents with caring, faith-filled adults who can apprentice them in the disciplines of a disciple
- Draw adolescents out of a peer-dominated paradigm and calls them to maturity through relationships with adults
- Catechize in a small group setting where testimony, discussion, and faith sharing can take place
- Support parents with resources to grow in their own faith and share their faith with their teenager
- Provide quality content so that the adult leaders can effectively introduce topics of the faith
You will meet as small groups weekly with your leaders for 90 minutes. Friends are welcome to join your small group. Registration forms are available on the bulletin board by the youth office or by clicking here. Parents and teens can check out more information about YDisciple at www.ydisciple.org. Questions? Contact Jenny Spencer at (605) 342-3336 or email email@example.com.
Currently there are four total YDisciple small groups meeting, two guys and two girls groups. Guys small groups meet on Tuesday nights at 6:30pm or Thursday nights at 8:30pm. Girls small groups meet on Tuesdays at 6:30 or Wednesdays at 7pm. To get signed up in a small group, call Jenny at 605.342.3336 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Contemplative Prayer by Bishop Robert Gruss
With the enthusiastic response to the Children's Liturgy during Mass, we hope to expand the parish lending library to include quality children's books for praying at Mass and borrowing to take home. If you would like to help by purchasing any of the books on our "wish" list or make a financial contribution, please contact Mary Farrell in the parish office.
Faith On The Road
Teens who have already been confirmed,
Are you not sure what the church offers you after Confirmation? Want to gather with people your age? Do you wonder about what the church teaches and why? Want to serve the Rapid City community?
Faith On The Road (FOTR) is for you! We meet on a monthly basis (sometimes more frequently depending on activities), for a variety of activities and events including: movie clubs, pizza discussion nights, visiting Newman Centers, serving meals at the Cornerstone Rescue Mission, serving community members in need, learning how to defend your faith beyond high school, and more!
There is no cost, food is provided and friends are welcome to come. Come and check out how to take your Faith On The Road! Questions? Call Denise at the youth office: 605.342.3336
