WEEK 5 -- Nov. 1-7

Sunday, Nov 1st is All Saints Day. It is a Holy Day of Obligation.

In honor of All Saints Day, instead of a reading assignment, this week we ask the students to spend some time researching potential saints names that they may use as their Confirmation name.  If they have already selected their name, please research some information about the saint.
  • When did they live and die?
  • Were they martyred?
  • What is their feast day?
  • Are they patron saints of anything?
They'll need this information later in the year.
 
If you are still looking for a saint here are some links to get you started:

Below is a brief outline of what children enrolled in St. Eulalia's Religious Education Program learn during Eighth Grade

During this year students prepare for the sacrament of Confirmation bestowed in the Spring. Students must research and choose their confirmation name, invite an adult to be their sponsor, perform 20 hours of church and community service, and attend a scheduled Confirmation Retreat. Our dedicated teachers ensure the students are prepared to confirm their faith before the parish community.

Although some see receiving of Confirmation as a "graduation" from Religious Education, and in the sense that students no longer have to attend weekly CCD classes, we like to think that everyone continues their own personal education in our Catholic Faith throughout their lives. Following Confirmation students are invited to actively participate in the Parish of St. Eulalia's thru ministry (as altar servers or lectors), service, Youth Group and more.
