THE RELIGIOUS EDUCATION PROGRAM AT  MARY, MOTHER OF MANKIND CHURCH

 

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Soon, Mary Mother of Mankind Parish will begin a new Faith Formation year. This coincides with the beginning of a new school year. This year, it also begins with a new Director of Religious Education for Grades 1-6. I am that person, Paul Fisette. You may have seen me around the Parish, as I have been a member for over 30 years. As a Lector, Eucharistic Minister and former President of the St. Vincent de Paul Society, we have probably met at one time or another. However, this new position is the most important one that I have ever accepted. To face the challenge of bringing our children closer to God by assisting them in growing their Faith and helping them to know and appreciate the Sacraments of the Catholic Church is a humbling endeavor. It is a task that can ONLY be achieved if you, I and our dedicated teachers work together to make it happen.

LET US BEGIN NOW!

Enclosed, please find a registration form for those children who will be coming back to CCD and for those who would like to join us. The charges are --$40 for the first child and $75 for 2 or more children. Please return the forms as soon as possible (but no later than August 10), so that we can thoughtfully plan for the coming year.

Also, you can help us to evangelize! If you know of someone with a young child who needs preparation for the Sacraments or is interested in learning about our Faith, please encourage him/her to call the Rectory at 401-231-3542.

Have a safe and fun rest of the Summer and I look forward to seeing you in the Fall!
