The Religious Education Committee meets on the 1st Tuesday of the month at 5:30pm from August through May in the St. Clare Room of the Parish Center. Meetings generally last 1½ - 2 hours. Agenda is emailed to Committee Members a week in advance, for their preparation. Occasionally, a special project may require additional preparation or meeting time(s).

The Religious Education committee supports parents in their role as the primary educators of their children by providing age-appropriate faith formation sessions and activities which develop an understanding and practice of discipleship. The committee works closely with the Director of Religious Education to identify suitable materials and resources for use with this age group and their parents. The committee monitors the programs and activities in this ministry as well as attend to any issues which arise. Ongoing formation is encouraged. Contact: Director of Religious Education, Dennis Vlasak, 262-673-4831 ext. 7406, (Safeguarding Certification is strongly recommended)
