Though the influence of peers and properly
trained adult catechists is important, catechetical programs are not
intended to supplant parents as the primary educators of their children.

RELIGIOUS EDUCATION DIOCESAN STANDARDS
The Religious Education Programs at St.
Christine Parish follow the Diocesan Guidelines for a
comprehensive yearly program passed on the Diocese of
Youngstown Curriculum for Catechesis promulgated by
Bishop Tobin in 1999.
The program will provide 36 hours of instructional
catechesis and include the components of message,
community, service and worship.
Both the school and parish Faith
use the Blest Are We Series (Silver Burdett Ginn). The
series is organized based on the four pillars of the
Catechism of the Catholic Church:
what Catholics believe
how Catholics worship
how Catholics live
how Catholics pray
For a closer look at your child's grade
appropriate curriculum and family activities, visit the Blest Are We Website (Parish Program).
We know that you are deeply interested
in your child's participation in the catechetical
program sponsored by our parish. We realize that it is
impossible to grade spiritual growth. Progress reports
are passed out twice during the year (after 12 week
periods) to indicate what your child's catechist
observed in regard to interest and participation.
