Is your child attending a Public or Private School in our parish community?  Mary Mother of God Parish offers a Religious Catholic Education correspondence program. In order for your child to receive the Sacraments of 1st Reconciliation, 1st Communion or  Confirmation, it is recommended that they receive ongoing (year by year) Catholic faith development. If your child is entering Grade 5 or 6 as of September 2018 and has not participated in a Catholic Religious Education program since 1st Communion, we recommend registering them in September 2018.   Confirmation Preparation is 2 programs of study. Completing the Grade 5 or Grade 7 program now means they will only have to work on the Confirmation Preparation program in Grade 7.If your child is entering Grade 7 as of September 2018 and has not participated in any Catholic Religious Education program since 1st Communion, we recommend you register TODAY and have them complete one program (Our Catholic Faith) over the summer months.
