CHILDREN'S RELIGIOUS EDUCATION

Programs

St. Thomas More offers a variety of Children Programs for a variety of ages.  Programs times are offered at different dates and times throughout the year to help accomodate most busy schedules.  These programs are designed to help children establish and grow their relationship with God in a fun and interactive way! 

Shepherd’s Promise

Shepherd’s Promise is weekly religious education for students in Grades PreK–8 (4 years old by June 1), geared for children who attend public schools, charter schools and those who are homeschooled. We encourage our classes to be a faith community where they not only learn their faith but learn how to express it as well. These include a student-led Mass in the church sanctuary, praying in the Adoration chapel and Saint scavenger hunts in the Devotional Cove. We also hold special Advent activities, Live Stations of the Cross during Lent, and a Marian Crowning in May.

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is weekly interactive faith formation where children in Grades PreK–6 (4 years old by September 1) explore with hands-on materials to understand the Bible, the Mass, the sacraments, liturgical life and the mysteries of our faith. This religious experience fosters the growth of the relationship between God and the child in a place specially prepared for the religious life of children called the Atrium.

St. Margaret of Castello Program

We have classes available for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities on Tuesdays 6:30pm–7:30pm. Students will encounter Christ through the sacraments, catechesis, music and prayer.

This is an open class. We accept students throughout the year.

Vacation Bible School

June 17-21 (9:00AM – 12:00PM)

Each class will rotate daily through stations of Bible Story, Music, Games, Crafts, and Snacks. We will offer Reconciliation for grades 3–5 on Thursday.  We will end our week on Friday with a musical celebration in the school gym at 10:00am followed by Mass in the sanctuary. This week promises to be an adventure for all! Don’t miss out!
