Jesus, as teacher, has modeled for us the care and concern that we must have for the young people of our parish. He welcomed children; He taught children. There is no doubt that children love Jesus and that they feel loved by Him.
As catechists, the teachers will try to follow the example of Jesus as well as enabling the children to grow in their capacity to relate to others, to love others, and be loved by others in return.
We are committed to proclaiming the goodness of God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We will do this through teaching the Catholic faith, through prayer, knowledge of the liturgy, developing moral growth, and social responsibility.
Our Lady of Angels and St. Mark Parish will be combining their Parish School of Religion (PSR) programs together for the 2018-2019 academic year.
This program is designed to supplement the growth of faith and the knowledge of our Catholic beliefs and tradition by providing for regular involvement in a curriculum and in experiences based on Jesus. We are here to assist you in educating your children in the Catholic faith, and to prepare them for the reception of the Sacraments: Reconciliation, First Eucharist and Confirmation.
Regular PSR classes will be held on the St. Mark school campus (15724 Montrose Avenue, Cleveland, 44111) on Mondays beginning September 17, 2018 from 6:30 PM-7:30 PM (grades 1-8). Sacrament sessions (Reconciliation/First Eucharist and Confirmation) for 2nd and 8th graders will still be held on Sundays at Our Lady of Angels. (specific dates of these sessions will be given at the parent meetings in September).
We welcome the partnership with you and your family as well as the local Church and community. Please return the registration form to St. Mark on or before June 1, 2018. This will help to get an accurate count for book ordering etc.
