Important Information for Religious Education Classes


We are excited to be offering a program that we believe will be a blessing to our parish families!

Instruction will take place in home, encouraging parents to journey with their children as they grow in faith. Parents will be guided by bi-monthly support directed by Fr. Marc, providing material which will enrich the at-home learning experience.

This support will be provided virtually at first and will shift to in-person meetings once COVID restrictions are lifted.

Each student will receive a textbook which will be accompanied by detailed instructions on how to get the most out of the textbook’s accompanying website.”

Our Lady Of Grace Religious Education Mission Statement

The Mission of Jesus was –

to make known to us the love of the Father and show us the way to Him.
Knowing our weakness, Jesus sent the spirit to strengthen His followers to live as God’s people.
This mission Jesus shared with His Apostles and Church. This mission has been passed on to us in Howard Beach.

At Our Lady of Grace, we continue – to proclaim God’s love to journey together as His followers
to depend on the Spirit and to build up the Kingdom of God here and now, in our midst.

At Our Lady of Grace, we believe – that religious education is a life-long process; that the goal of religious education is to know God and to respond to God in one’s life; that the role of the catechist is to facilitate this process by sharing faith and by good example;  that each child entrusted to us is uniquely loved by the Lord and is called to a loving relationship with Him.

That together – with the religious education staff, the parents/guardians, the children are called to build a
Christian Community in the City of God.

Attending Mass regularly is the most important thing you can do as parents to fulfill your role as primary educators of the faith to your children.
