REGISTRATION FOR OUR PARISH 2022-2023 SCHOOL OF RELIGION YEAR is NOW CLOSED. Contact Angie for more information at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Welcome to our parish Religious Formation page. Our Lady of the Presentation offers two main ways for parish families to receive faith instruction for their children. Parents can choose to send their children to our parish School of Religion (SOR) or to our regional Catholic elementary school, Mary of Nazareth. Both offer programs for children in grades Kindergarten through 8th grade.
SCHOOL OF RELIGION: Our Lady of the Presentation parish offers a K-8 School of Religion program which focuses on bringing students into an encounter with Christ through education and application in the classroom. This ministry prepares children for receiving the Sacraments of First Reconciliation, Holy Communion and Confirmation as part of a two year program (Please see the sacramental headings above for more info on this two year program requirement.). We are blessed with over 70 children enrolled in our program every year.
VOLUNTEERING: Please consider joining our dedicated volunteer catechists and their assistants by sharing your time and your faith joyfully, please contact the director at: email@example.com. You can also submit your contact info on the main page of our parish website by scrolling to the bottom right-hand side. Thank you!
CURRICULA: Our School of Religion (SOR) offers a traditional Confraternity of Christian Doctrine (CCD) classes in Grades K-8. See more information about our programs below.
LOYOLA PRESS is our main curriculum for our K-8th grade programs. For information, go to Christ Our Life to be taken directly to the Parent/Student section. There is an abundance of information, so please give yourself 20-30 minutes to become familiar with what is available.
Our Lady of the Presentation combines with St. Mary's Catholic Church in Barnesville to form our high school youth group! Youth Group meets Wednesday evenings from 7:00-8:30pm at St. Mary's Pavilion in Barnesville. We provide dinner. Afterwards, there is a half hour of social time followed by a lesson/discussion. There are also service opportunities, and youth group outings throughout the year.
The youth minister position is temporarily vacant. Please contact the parish office for more information.
