Parish Religious Education
The parishes provide a combined religious education program at the St. Michael parish hall in Simpson on Sunday mornings, beginning with the 9:00am Mass and continuing with classes for all grades. It is served by a DRE, 10 catechists, 3 substitutes and 6 HS aides. There are 160 children participating, and preliminary plans have been made for the celebrations of First Communion and Confirmation when the parish moves into the yellow phase.
More details about specific parish ministries available in Office for Parish Life — also refer to mission and goal statements on opening page of this posting.
Heart of the Linked Parish relationship includes:
- The long standing faith of generations who have built and sustained the parishes.
- The centrality of the sacramental life of all the people.
- The unifying nature of the Religious Education program that is centered on the Sunday celebration of the Eucharist.
- The options we have made for the elderly and the pastoral/liturigical ministry to the dying and their families.
