Welcome to St. Luke’s Religious Education Home Page

Our Religious Education Program exists to support and enable parents to honor the commitment made at the baptism of their children.  At baptism you as parents promised to raise your children in the faith.  We as church made a commitment to assist you in this process.

As we continue together in our journey in faith, this year we will focus on the theme:  "WE ARE THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD."

It is the goal of Religious Education to bring the young, and not so young, to know more fully and deeply the Word of God, Jesus Christ, the Light of the World.  Our society, now more than ever, needs witnesses to the Light of the World.  At the Easter Vigil on Holy Saturday we process into a darkened church and as the Paschal Candle is brought down the aisle to the sanctuary "THE LIGHT OF CHRIST" is proclaimed three times.  We respond:  "Thanks be to God."  May our efforts to proclaim the light of Christ enable those we witness to, to also proclaim, "Thanks be to God." 

In the 28th chapter of St. Matthew's Gospel, we hear the great commission of Christ, to "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you."  Let us together support and encourage our young people to live as Christ lived, and in so doing further the Kingdom by bringing Christ the Light wherever they go.  Helping our young people to grow in this understanding is the ultimate goal of our Religious Education Program.
