Religious Education

 

Summer 2017

It’s never too early to start planning for the next Religious Education year!  Please prayerfully consider helping our youth grow in their faith by volunteering to be a catechist, team catechist, catechist assistant, or a substitute.  There are opportunities available at each grade level (K – 8th grade) and stipends or free family tuition will once again be available.  All of our volunteers must complete a background check and online Safe Environment Training.  Registration for the 2017/2018 RE year will begin soon!  Please contact the Religious Education Department at 319-337-4231 or reoffice@stthomasmoreic.com for more information or to volunteer!
