We Would Like to Help
As life becomes more and more complicated, families are being pulled in many different directions. Raising a child to be well rounded and a productive adult can be a difficult task today. Parents provide children with a great many gifts and blessings. Yet, there are times giving a child an understanding about the importance of their faith families can find this task to be a bit difficult.
A child’s faith will serve as a firm foundation in the years to come. The time and effort you have given to providing your child with a faith based family will help make them confident in their ability to cope with many of the adventures they will face. St. John’s of Rochester is here for your family to assist you in any way we can to help your child grow to be all that they can be. We look forward to working with you and getting to know your family. If you have any questions please contact Judy or Heather at 248-8850.
Formal classes begin in Kindergarten. All children attending classes must be registered for classes. We offer many options for you to choose from. Grades 1-7 meet at 10:40 a.m. Sunday morning; Grades 1-6 meet at 4:30 pm on Monday or 4:30 p.m. Tuesday. Grade 7 meets on Monday evenings at 7:00 p.m. Eighth graders will be part of the two year Confirmation program. High School programming is available on Sunday morning and Sunday evenings as well as Monday evenings.
This program is available the first full two weeks of August. Summer intensives is a full two-week commitment for grades 1-7 from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon. If you have any other conflicts during these two weeks (sports, vacations, other classes, etc.) this program is not for you. Catechists will be covering two lessons a day in order to complete a full year’s curriculum. Students will also be expected to do required homework. Families involved in this program will also be required to attend the Advent Kick off Session and the Lenten Family Program.
If you have any questions or need further information about the program or how you can volunteer within the Religious Education Department please contact Judy Leone, Director of Religious Education (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call 248-8850.
