Religious Education Program
Resurrection' 2019-2020 Religious Ed Program is in need of Religious Education Teachers and Aides. If you are interested, please contact Linda Heinecke at 262-629-1500 as soon as possible.
Religious Education Teachers and Aides: Catechesis is a responsibility of the entire faith community and is entrusted to every baptized Catholic. We are in need of adults of any age, willing to share and pass on their faith to our elementary, middle school and high school students. If you are interested in assisting our parish as a religious education teacher or aide, or have questions about these roles, please contact Linda Heinecke at 262-629-1500.
St. JOHN BOSCO YOUTH DAY
Students in Grades 8 – 11 (in the Fall of 2019) - Mark your calendars for Saturday, October 5, 2019.
You will experience a Catholic Youth Conference held right in your backyard. It will be held once again at Holy Hill. Students should arrive at about 8:30 a.m. so they can be checked in. Buses will leave the high school parking lot closest to Hwy. 175 in Slinger promptly at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, October 5, 2019. We will return at approximately 6:30 p.m. All students need to take the bus down and back from the Slinger High School parking lot. This year we will be staying for the entire event. Read the expectations of participants for the St. John Bosco below.
The cost of the bus will be covered by the youth activity fund. The students have the option of bringing their own lunch or paying $8.00 at the time of registration for a lunch.
Most of the events take place in a large tent erected in a grassy field down the hill from the church. Please dress accordingly (weather can vary).
This year’s theme is “God Is.” Helping to unpack this rich message of God’s presence in our lives to our young people will be Leah Darrow, who has a powerful witness story that can really speak to teens today, and is an international speaker, author and podcaster. Matt Regitz, who is a youth leader himself and a popular Catholic speaker. We will also be joined by a few Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist, who are a vibrant religious community based in Ann Arbor, Michigan. And finally, Nick Scanlan, who is a local Catholic musician and youth mister at St. Charles Parish in Hartland, WI. This is a wonderful team of dynamic youth leaders to minister to our youth!
The daylong event, from 9am to 6pm, promises to be spiritually fruitful, with inspirational speakers, heart-filled prayer and faithful fun, as young Catholics come together to celebrate our Catholic faith. Each year, hundreds of youth from throughout Wisconsin’s five dioceses gather to show their faith in Jesus Christ.
Below is a Field Trip Permission Form, which needs to be filled out and returned no later than September 23, 2019 and an $8.00 lunch fee if they will be getting lunch down there. (Checks should be made out to “Resurrection Religious Ed.”). If you have any questions, please call the Religious Education office at 262-629-1500.
