Children’s Religious Education

Children’s Religious Education

Children’s Religious Education programs are shared with Holy Family Parish. They are focused on sacramental preparation and are organized for elementary school and middle school.

FIRST EUCHARIST

At St. Robert, the preparation for First Eucharist is done in an all-parish program involving families whose children attend parochial school and those whose children attend public school. It is a family-centered program in which parents play a very important role in their child’s formation. The program includes large group preparation sessions, home study materials and a liturgical celebration (“First Communion”) in late April or early May. For details, contact our Religious Education Coordinator Kevin Peck at kpeck@strobert.org

CHILDREN’S RELIGIOUS EDUCATION

Children’s Liturgy of the Word

St. Robert provides Children’s Liturgy of the World to children age 3 to 3rd grade at the 8:30am Family Mass. Prior to the first reading, children are invited to the altar for a blessing, then led from the main church to the Community Room downstairs. There, they hear the Word of God in terms appropriate to their age. They return to church during the Presentation of the Gifts. For more information, please contact Caitlin Raether at (414) 332-1164 ext. 3014, or craether@strobert.org.

Fifth-graders and older are invited to become altar servers. Please contact the Parish Office, (414) 332-1164, for more information.
