Religious Education

While we believe the faith formation of our youth is vital, we also believe in protecting our children, our teachers, our parish families, and our community. 



You can answer this week's question on our Religious Education Facebook page (after 9am each Sunday), or on this web form. If you missed a week don't worry -- previous questions are on the form -- just answer them when you can!

Each week check out the Sunday Connection before or after mass to help your student(s) put this week's readings into context.

This Week’s Family Connection: 12/5/21 - Second Sunday of Avent

Gospel Reading: Luke 3:1-6
What's happening? John preaches repentance and baptizes in the region of the Jordan.

During the season of Advent, we choose to add many activities to our family's schedule to prepare for our celebration of Christmas. John the Baptist reminds us that our repentance is another way in which we can prepare for the Lord's coming and our celebration of Christmas. Our Parish will hold a Family Penance Service on Monday, 12/20 at 7pm. We invite you to attend and receive the sacrament.

Read together today's Gospel, Luke 3:1-6. Talk about how John the Baptist called upon the people to prepare the way of the Lord through repentance. Together as a family, prepare a simple reconciliation service in preparation for Christmas. Gather in a prayerful space, perhaps around the family Advent wreath. Read again from today's Gospel, Luke 3:1-6. Invite each family member to pray silently, asking God to forgive his or her sins. Pray together the Act of Contrition. Then celebrate God's forgiveness by sharing the sign of peace with one another.
                                                                         
Act of Contrition: O my God, I am sorry for all my sins. In choosing to do wrong and failing to do good, I have sinned against you and your Church,  I firmly intend, with the help of Your Son, To make up for my sins and to love as I should. Amen.



Families can now pay their fees online using their credit/debit card or checking account. Of course anyone is still welcome to send a check (payable to St. Eulalia's) to the parish office or place the fees in an envelope and place in the offertory box.

Number Students Registering (max family payment is $105)



Say your prayers with Fr. Tudgay! Although the  video was created for our Second Grade students preparing for First Reconciliation we invite everyone to pray the Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be, and Act of Contrition with Father while we are apart. 

NOTE: Father recites a different version of the Act of Contrition than we teach in our program. As we tell the children, there are many versions of this prayer and none of them are wrong. If they are still working on the prayer they can use Fr. Tudgay’s version or the one from our parish prayer sheet (or another one all together).

NEW -- Take a virtual tour of the church. See the views from the choir loft and altar. Learn about the statues and holy oils.
