"FATHER, . . . this is eternal life, that they may know you, 

the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent."

Our Religious Education Classes have ended for this school year. We had a wonderful time at the cluster class party where we rode the bus to Sycamore Mall for the Movie “The Miracle Season.” Thank you to our cluster DRE, Betty Gerot, for arranging this evening. 58 students and 14 guests attended the movie. Special thanks to the John and Bess Gorman Educational Trust for providing the funds for this cluster event. A great time was had by all, even with some tears!

Any questions, please contact Betty Gerot @ 319.351.0937

Excerpt from Prologue of the Catechism of the Catholic Church:

"Those who with God's help have welcomed Christ's call and freely responded to it are urged on by love of Christ to proclaim the Good News everywhere in the world. This treasure, received from the apostles, has been faithfully guarded by their successors.

All Christ's faithful are called to hand it on from generation to generation, by professing the faith, by living it in fraternal sharing, and by celebrating it in liturgy and prayer."

"Catechesis is an education in the faith of children, young people, and adults which includes especially the teaching of Christian doctrine imparted, generally  speaking, in an organic and systematic way, with a view to initiating the hearers into the fullness of Christian life."
