High School/Middle School Religious Education
Page Last Updated 8/1/2021
"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
Fall 2021 brings an exciting opportunity for our faith families. Middle and High School Religious Education will meet in person. This year we will make some changes to the times offered for religious education due to the renovations and the Parish Center becoming the primary location for all church functions.
NOTE - September 1 TOGETHER event location - Holy Family Church.
Middle School: Wednesday evenings starting September 8, 6-7:15 PM, at Saint Joseph.
High School: Wednesday evenings starting September 8, 7:00 – 8:15 PM, at Saint Joseph.
Students may arrive 30 minutes prior to the start of class for Papa John's Pizza and social/activity time.
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. As in years past, 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. 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. This year we will combine religious education with the Alpha program for freshmen and sophomores, the Together program with St. John Bosco Youth Ministries, and NET Ministries. This is a fantastic team to engage our young people. 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.
