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 early May. For details, contact the St. Robert Parish Office, ddannecker@strobert.org or (414) 332-1164, ext. 3010.

2019-2020 CHILDREN’S RELIGIOUS EDUCATION

Children’s Liturgy of the Word

St. Robert provides Children’s Liturgy of the World to children in grades 5K – 2nd. At the 8:30am Family Mass, children are led from the main church (after the Opening Prayer) to the church meeting room. 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.
