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

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!"
