Religious Education

Upon St. Rita and St. Paul the Apostle parishes’ recent de-collaboration of our joint religious education program, Sowing the Seeds, a rebranding was needed for our own religious education ministry. Moving forward, Journey Catholic Kids will be used for our children’s religious education ministry (PreK-Grade 5), Journey Catholic Youth will be used for our religious education youth ministry (Grade 6-11) and Journey Catholic Adults will be used for adult formation.

This name Journey Catholic was chosen because our Christian Catholic faith is not stagnant; in fact, our faith should constantly be moving us and reawakening our spirits with the grace that flows from the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Therefore, our new branding, Journey Catholic, is a recognition and reminder of Christ’s unending, overwhelming and unbelievable love for all people-no matter where they are on their faith journey.

Our classes are taught by dedicated volunteer catechists who are committed Catholic Christians who are knowledgeable about the teachings of the Church.

Materials which are developmentally appropriate and are in conformity with the Catechism of the Catholic Church are used throughout our program. Our curriculum is structured via the requirements of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. We also use interactive instructional approaches to involve all children/youth and in order to recognize each individual’s unique gifts and growth in the faith and community.
