Youth Religious Education

Among the top priorities of Saint Henry parish community is the opportunity and obligation to assist parents in passing on our Catholic heritage to our youth. Our Religious Education program is designed to offer Catholic youths not only the basics of the Catholic faith, but to encourage Christian fellowship, stewardship, and community involvement. Of course, the parish can only supplement what is offered at home, so we strongly encourage all families to regularly participate in our liturgies and ongoing education and formation opportunities.

Elementary

Weekly classes for these students are only the first part of the journey. The Sacraments of Penance and First Communion normally take place in the 2nd grade. The parish also sponsors various fun activities throughout the year to help children be a part of the broader parish community. There are stewardship programs and food drives to teach students the important aspects of giving to church and to care for the needy.

Junior High

Starting with weekly Religious Education classes, our Jr. High program concentrates on a two year preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation. These years emphasize the Precepts of the Church and basic Catholic teachings. Using service projects, liturgical participation, stewardship training, retreats and outings--our program encourages youth to recognize that Confirmation as a Sacrament of Initiation is a beginning of awareness of the Christian lifestyle and not an end to religious formation.

Senior High

High school youth, through discussions, workshops, service projects, parish involvement, stewardship training, and retreats are challenged to learn about their Catholic faith and apply that faith in living in today's world. Youth are called to recognize that Christ is our Savior and the model of life we want to imitate.

Youth, networking with the Diocesan Youth Office programs and Catholic Youth Ministry, are also called to recognize that there is a communal nature to living a faithful life, by interacting with youth throughout the area and by participating in the parish liturgies and community socials.
