We are so excited to invite you and your children to join us for our 2023-2024 Religious Education Year. Our primary goal in our Religious Education and Youth Ministry programs is to provide parents with the support to raise your children in the Catholic faith and build a family life which is built upon and completely intertwined with that faith.

Dear Families of Incarnation Religious Education,
We recently asked you in a survey to let us know what you like about our program, what you are looking for, and what schedule would work best for you. Based on those results, we are happy to announce that in the Fall of 2023, our Religious Education model will be transitioning from a traditional classroom setting to a family-based Religious Education model.
Why the change from the “Traditional” to “Family-Based Religious Education”?
Parents want the best for their children – yet our society has become so busy, always competing for our time. Our desire is that we give your family an opportunity to transmit the Faith in a dynamic fashion that will be relevant and compatible with your family life. Family faith formation can help families deepen their relationship with God, live and learn their Faith together, share their faith stories, and strengthen the relationships within their families. In this way, we hope to support parents in their God-given role as first and primary educators of the Faith, and in being witnesses of the Gospel for their children.
By forming stronger families, we are also strengthening the parish family. Unlike traditional models of formation, the Family Faith program brings the entire family together monthly on Sunday afternoons, to pray, break open the Word of God, discuss topics of our Faith, and worship together at Mass. Incarnation Religious Education offers a support system for families of all sizes and make-ups, in partnership with parents, to help families increase in their knowledge and love of Jesus and His Holy, Catholic Church.
We are confident that you and your children will appreciate this new format. For more information about the new model of Faith Formation, please click on “Elementary” on the RE Menu at the top right of this page.
May God bless you and your family!
