The education and formation of our parishioners is a major priority for our parish. At a child’s baptism, his or her parents and godparents promise to raise the child in the faith of the Catholic Church.  Parents are the Primary Educators of their children in faith.  It is their responsibility to teach their children about our Lord and His Gospel.  It is their role to form the child’s heart and mind by their example of Christian living.  It is their role to teach children their prayers and bring them to Church each week.  The parish’s Religious Education Program exists to assist parents in their role as the primary educators of their children.  We are here to assist you in educating and forming your children to become disciples of Jesus Christ and active members of the Catholic Church. 

 

There still is plenty of room for your child(ren) if they are not yet registered for Religious Education!  Let the parish help you pass on your Catholic Faith to your child(ren)!  Contact Dennis Vlasak at 262-673-4831 ext. 406 or dre@stkiliancong.org if you have questions

 

St. Kilian Parish Religious Education Program can only successfully proceed with the help of many, many volunteers.  Please pray and search your heart for people to come forward to fill our vacancies.  The parish currently is looking for the following:

Let Yourself to Wrestle With God - Fr. Mike Schmitz - Have you ever felt like God really wanted you to do something, but you just weren’t ready for it? Maybe it’s a big life change, a relationship, or a vocation, but there’s something holding you back from saying yes to God’s call.

People may be inclined to think that this is a bad thing, and might put themselves down, saying they aren’t open to God’s will in their lives.  But what if this back-and-forth with God is the one thing we need to really say yes?

When we wrestle with God, we’re not only engaging in relationship with him, but we’re being truly honest with him. He desires conversation with us, and it’s in wrestling with what God wants for our lives that we conform our hearts to his.

We may think we know God’s vocation for us, or his plan for our life, and that may scare us.  But the truth is, we will never really be sure what God wants us to do until he really shows us. We can project sometimes.  Right now, all he wants us to do is be his: to dedicate ourselves and our lives to him and his works, and to live every day as an opportunity to reach holiness.

Don’t pick a fight with God, thinking we know what he may want us to do someday.  But don’t be afraid to wrestle with him today, because it can give us the strength and understanding needed to do his will.

 

Aren't All Churches the Same? - Fr. Mike Schmitz

 

WHY DOES IT MATTER WHAT CHURCH I BELONG TO? IN OTHER WORDS, WHAT MAKES THE CATHOLIC CHURCH DIFFERENT?

The Catholic Church is not just one denomination among many. In fact, it can trace its founding roots back to Jesus Christ, who started our Church. For 2,000 years, the Catholic Church has guarded the truth that Jesus has taught, whether in or out of style. In the Church today, one can experience the most personal relationship with Christ through the Holy Eucharist, the gift of Christ’s Body and Blood to us. Since its founding, the Catholic Church has continued to be the largest body of Christians on earth. Though it’s not perfect, nor does it have perfect members, the Church still contains the fullness of truth, which Jesus promised would set us free.

RELIGIOUS EDUCATION PROGRAM MISSION

The Religious Education (RE) Program at St. Kilian supports parents in their obligation to form their children in the faith and practice of the Catholic Christian life. The goal of the Religious Education Program is to aid in the growth and development of the children’s faith so that it can become a real guiding force in their lives. To continue to provide educational and spiritual formation, while, identifying and fulfilling the needs of families and parishioners of all ages. And to build up the body of Christ, within and beyond our parish community, through evangelization and service.

The Church’s ministry seeks to guide young people in the call to holiness by developing a personal relationship with Jesus Christ by meeting Him in the Scriptures, in the life and teachings of the Catholic Church, and in their own prayer lives.
