Religious Education

This year, due to COVID, Religious Education will begin with at-home instruction by the family. Instruction begins October 4th. Registration forms for the families have been in September bulletins and on the parish websites, to be turned in by email to sacredsaintccd@gmail.com or the church offices or  register online at sacredheartweb.org or saintbernards.org. Assistance from parish catechists is available after Masses monthly for registered families in person or by phone. Contact Kim Farrell, DRE for more information; her phone number is on the bulletin.

For English speakers, we will be sending Baltimore Catechisms to each family that enrolls, and to you as well if you are interested in assisting in this way.

For Spanish speakers, we are still researching options to keep the programs as similar as possible. Our Faith and Life series is still our main text, but during at home instruction this text is much easier for parents: https://www.comcenter.com/program/429/

The video is shot in high definition. You can view it here or on any smart device (TV, phone, tablet or computer) that has the YouTube app. Be sure to turn on the HD setting to get the best picture and sound. You should also have the ability to make the video full screen. (Note: higher resolutions may not be available for the first several hours after uploading)

Phone Apps for Catholics

We have gotten some questions about finding high quality apps that support us in our practice of the Catholic faith. After much research, we are recommending that people visit CatholicApps.com

CatholicApps.com was created in response to the call to evangelization from Saint John Paul II, and then continued on through Pope Benedict, and of course the call for deeper evangelization from Pope Francis
