Faith First Ages 5-10
If your child is not currently enrolled in our Catechism program, you should be aware of the following:
Religious Education in Schools:
Religious education programs in the schools which previously existed has been eliminated as of September 2008. The courses has been replaced by a course entitled Ethics and Religious Culture which the Ministry of Education has imposed throughout Quebec from Grade 1 through Secondary V. This program will affect our children. The Church and family environment will become, more than ever, the main center for Catholic Faith transmission.
Since many years we have been offering a catechism program, “Faith First”, and it is through this program that our young people will prepare and receive the Sacraments: ie First Confession (Reconciliation), First Communion, and Confirmation.
We also hold meetings for Parents/Adults to help them grow in their faith (along with their children). Our goal is to supply the tools to prepare to answer questions, concerns from their children, who, as of September 2008, are exposed to various religions such as Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Jehovah Witness, Atheism, etc.
“Faith First” catechism program is for children from 5 years old to secondary level. It gives your child the opportunity to meet in a group which is more stimulating. Together we discover how much God loves us, who is Jesus who shows us the way to live as a child of God. Weekly lessons run from September to May with one scheduled day off per month. Classes are held at Mary Queen of Peace church. For information please refer to the Registration forms and Policy document.
