"Religion is the world in its journey toward God. Christianity is God journeying toward the world, and people who believe in him taking the same direction as he.
- Cardinal Hans Urs von Balthasar
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. This year, Holy Family is combining its Wednesday Night catechesis with Saint Joseph Parish. Middle and high school students from Holy Family will meet with their peers at Saint Joseph Church's Parish Center in the school cafeteria from 7:00 to 8:20 pm unless otherwise noted on the schedule below. Food is served from 6:30 to 7:00. We invite your family to join us. If you haven't sent your children in the past, this is a fantastic opportunity to start doing so. We have assembled a wonderful dedicated team of friendly faith-filled catechists to teach your children about Jesus's love for them and his Church's role in supporting them and accompanying them for the rest of their lives. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Holy Family's Director of Religious Education, Joseph H. Munning IV at [email protected] or 812-482-3076 ex 304.
Please note, that confirmation is still celebrated separately by parish. Holy Family students will receive confirmation at their parish and have a separate preparation. More information is available here. Saint Joseph students will receive confirmation at a different date and have different preparation requirements for their parishioners.
