With great joy, we welcome our children enrolled in the Religious Education program.  
We want to tell them that Jesus Himself is calling them to learn more about Him and His
great love for them.  He said, “Let the children come to me.”  We pray that God imparts His
blessing upon our Religious Education children - upon each and everyone of them.  May they
stay close to God.  

We want to thank their parents for their interest in and concern for the Christian upbringing of their children.  On the day of their
child’s baptism, they were told that “they are the first teachers of their child in the ways of faith.”  We ask the parents to nurture
at home whatever Christian education their children learn in the Religious Education.

We also ask them to come with their children to Sunday Mass and join the faith-community of St. Christopher - St. Margaret Mary’s
in worship.  Coming to Sunday worship is one of the best ways of affirming and sustaining the Christian formation of the children.
Remember the wise saying:  “The Family that prays together, stays together.”

A word about our Catechists whose generosity of volunteer service is most admirable.  They should be called the “evangelizers of
the young” by their zeal and devotion to teach the children the gospel of Jesus and the doctrines of His Church.  Under
Mrs. Barbara Regan as  Coordinator, our Religious Education program has our full support and that of the whole parish.  God bless!"

2015-2016 Registration
As was mentioned on our Home Page:
Our Religious Education program is currently taking St. Christopher and St. Margaret Mary
Registrations and re-Registrations for the 2015-2016 semester.  Classes will be held at
St. Margaret Mary’s Dongan Hall classrooms (under the Church).  By joining forces there are more
Catechists allowing for a Wednesday Class option or a Sunday Class option.

We accept children who have already been baptized from Grade 1 to Grade 8.

1st Penance is made in level 2, 1st Communion in level 2 and Confirmation in level 8.  
Our program is a continuing education program which builds on each previous year’s
curriculum; therefore, it is important that students remain in the program throughout.

For those who have reached the age of 7 and have not been baptized or have reached
Grade 4 and have no religious education we have a separate program for them.

For additional information and/or a tour of the facilities, please contact Mrs. Barbara Regan
