Sunday Morning Religious Education (SMRE)

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd

is a religious formation program that offers children a hands-on approach to learning more about their faith and inviting them into deeper relationship with God. Gathering in the parish center, a room specially prepared for them, the children receive presentations rooted in the Bible and the Liturgy on a variety of topics such as liturgical colors, the parables, biblical geography, articles of the altar, prayers and gestures of the Mass, and much more. Each presentation includes simple yet beautiful materials the child is invited to work with during the extended work time that is available to them during each class.

It is rooted in the Bible and the liturgy of the church with an interactive approach to learning. Children gather in an "atrium," a room prepared for them, which contains simple yet beautiful materials that they use.
