REP News – Week of August 5th
CATECHISTS ARE NEEDED IN THE FOLLOWING GRADES THIS 2019-20 YEAR
We are desperately in need of the following volunteers:
- 1 Catechist for Grade 3, meets every Tuesday from 4:00-5:15 p.m.
- 2 Catechists for Grade 4, meets every Tuesday from 4:00-5:15 p.m.
Anyone interested in sharing their faith with the young children in our parish are asked to contact Sister Adrienne or Sister Joan at 847-398-5011 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please consider volunteering for this very important ministry of educating our parish children in the Catholic faith. The teacher manuals are very easy to follow and have many suggestions for each lesson. Sister Adrienne and Sister Joan assist new Catechists in getting started and give continued help throughout the year. All the help and materials will be provided to be a successful Catechist and feel the positive rewards of working with children to help them learn and develop the roots of faith.

REGISTRATION FOR GRADE 1
At the present time, we have three classes of first grade students. When each of these classes reaches a capacity quota, we will be closing registration for grade 1 unless two volunteers step forward to co-teach a fourth class. Parents who have first grader are asked to register as soon as possible since we are reaching class size limits rapidly. Registration forms can be found on the Education tab of the parish website, www.olwparish.org.
Letters regarding class placement and Catechists’ Assignments will be sent out the third week of August.
