High School/Middle School Religious Education

Page Last Updated 11/4/2018

On Wednesday Nights those students who do not attend a Catholic school can gather at our Catholic parishes.  The goal is to prepare young people for lifelong friendship and discipleship with Jesus, a life of growing steadily in knowledge and faith.  Particular areas of focus are the Gospel, sacraments, prayer, the liturgy, theology of the body, Christian living, and social justice.  Middle school, freshmen, and sophomores meet at Holy Family in the school cafeteria from 7:00 to 8:20 pm unless otherwise noted on the schedule. Juniors and Seniors meet at Saint Joseph Parish from 6:30 to 8:00 unless otherwise noted on the schedule. Class notes are published on our blog here by Friday morning. Freshmen and Sophomores must attend regularly and consistently to be eligible for confirmation unless another arrangement is made with the Director of Religious Education, Joseph H Munning IV at jmunning@evdio.org. Confirmation requirements, sign-ups, and the schedule are available here.

St. Maria Goretti Youth Distinction Award:      Each year, the Diocese of Evansville allows the parishes to nominate students for the St. Maria Goretti Youth Distinction Award.  We have a lot of great students at Holy Family Parish, but we are limited to two nominations each year.  To be nominated by the parish, the student must be a high school senior, enrolled in and participating in religious education, participating in St. John Bosco Youth Ministry, and serving in some form of parish ministry.  These are the basic criteria for a student to be considered for award nomination, before we look at other achievements and accomplishments.  There are a lot of great high school students at Holy Family Parish who deserve to be recognized for their accomplishments, but since we are limited to two nominations, we have to have basic criteria for the nominations.
