Religious Education Office

781-871-1244

From the director of Religious education

The Holy Family Office of Religious Education is responsible for sacramental preparation for Baptism, First Penance, First Holy Communion and Confirmation, as well as the continuing faith education of all students in grades Pre K - 12.  I always tell the parents in our Baptism preparation program that the greatest gift we as parents can give our children is the gift of the Catholic faith.  It is a beautiful sacrament and a great day to celebrate.  But I remind them that the real work for us as parents is "What comes next?".  Our children must continue their religious education.  They must attend church each weekend and  be a part of this great community at Holy family.  They must know that they are loved by God and by us.

I am grateful for the opportunity to join with you and our volunteer catechists on this journey.  Please do not hesitate to call (781)-871-1244 or make an appointment to stop in the CCD office if you have questions, need registration information or would like to volunteer to help.

"Let the children come to me, and do not prevent them; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."  (Matthew 19:14)

CATECHISTS

A catechist is a faith filled Catholic who is extraordinary, because he or she teaches as Jesus did.  Just as the pastor gathers the parish to celebrate and share in the life of the Spirit alive in the faith community, so the catechist gathers our children and young adults and creates opportunities for them to experience the meaning and importance of Jesus in their lives.

Commissioned and supported by the Director of Religious Education, the parish and our pastor, catechists are entrusted with the important role of formally presenting the story of Faith to our young people.  True to the past, open to the future, dedicated to deepening the faith of the present generation - if this describes you, we hope you will consider becoming a catechist here at Holy Family Parish.  We are currently looking for catechists for the upcoming school year.  Please call Liz Davis, DRE at 781-871-1244 or email her at: holyfamilyreligioused@yahoo.com
