Educational Activities at St. Luke Parish

Our Philosophy of Religious Education

The family is a community and the most basic way in which the Lord gathers us, forms us, and acts in our world. The goal of Parish School of Religious Education is to help parents and children to grow in a greater understanding of the Catholic Faith as a family community.

The aim of catechesis is to encourage a living, explicit and fruitful expression of faith. The family becomes holy, not because it is perfect, but because Godís grace is at work within it, helping its members set out every day on the way of love.

What can you as a partner or Guardian do to help reinforce your childís or childrenís faith? Below are a few suggestions: 

1.    Make prayer part of your familyís daily life.

2.    Model and live your lives in accord with Christian principles.

3.    Participate in Sunday liturgy and discuss how it affects your life.

4.    Support and guild your child/children in making good discussions.

5.    Serve others as Jesus did; identify ways your family can help others.

6.    Make the Scriptures a part of your family and share Bible Stories.

7.    Make sure that your children attend the Religious Education Classes.

In order to strengthen the faith life of our worshipping community, St. Luke Parish strives to provide quality Catholic educational experiences for parishioners of all ages at St. Luke Parish.

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is a process by which adults are initiated into the Catholic community.  Adults who have never been baptized, adults baptized in other Christian faiths and who desire to explore Catholicism, and adults baptized into the Catholic faith but not reared in Catholic faith understanding or practice, are invited to explore this process.  The First RCIA class for the current year is October 13th at 7 p.m. in the Rectory. Subsequent meetings are every Thursday.
