A Parish Religious Education Program for Grades Six to Eight
The St. Elizabeth Junior High Religious Education program uses the St. Mary’s Press parish religious program for sixth to eighth graders, which introduces young adolescents to Jesus Christ in a new way and inspires them to follow him.
Fostering the faith of young adolescents involves helping them to make connections between the Catholic faith and everyday life. It also means helping young people to strengthen their connection to the faith community. Catholic Connections aims to strengthen the participants’ Catholic identity and inspire them to participate more fully in the Church’s mission.
Using an active, hands-on approach to religious education, Catholic Connections is a comprehensive parish religious education program for Sixth, Seventh, and Eighth Graders.
