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 parents promised to raise their children in the faith. We as church made a commitment to assist parents in this process.
In Chapter 10 verse 27 of St. Luke's gospel, Jesus lays down the plan for inheriting eternal life. It is simple. We are to love God and others with all of our being. Helping the children understand this will fulfill what we promised in baptism, to teach them what it means to be a true follower of Christ.
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 the Christ. In St. Luke's gospel we hear this the Greatest Commandment; to love with all of our being. Our mission then is to love with the love of Jesus.
And so as we continue together in our journey in faith, this year we will focus on the theme:
"YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD, YOUR GOD, WITH ALL YOUR HEART, WITH ALL YOUR STRENGTH, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND, AND YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF" LK10:27
