Parish Religious Education

Welcome!  You are looking at a page dedicated to the faith formation of the children and adults of St. James and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Parishes.  St. Augustine said that finding God is the greatest human achievement.  We hope that the programs offered at St. James and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton will help you in this endeavor.

The five-day St. James/Seton School offers religious education daily.  For information on the curriculum please contact Jo Kusek, PRE Director at 402-572-0369.

P.R.E. is the religious education program for students who attend public schools.  The program is shared by St. James and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton parishes; classes for grades K-8 meet at St. James/Seton School at 4720 N 90th Street by St. James Church.  In 2016-2017, one session will be offered from 6-7:15 pm on Wednesday nights.  

Please see the Adult Faith Formation page for a listing of current offerings for adults. 

It is so important to keep growing in our knowledge and love for God and the Catholic Church. May God bless and sustain you in your search for God!

 

Generations of Faith Questions of the Week

Gospel for April 23, 2017   John 20:19-31
Key Passage: Then Jesus said to Thomas, "Put your finger here and see my hands and bring your hand and put it into my side and do not be unbelieving, but believe."
Question for Adults: Thomas doubted and we still call him a saint.   Doubt was only one part of his path in following Jesus.   What is a good way to handle our doubts?
Question for Youth:  In today's visual and audio world, how do you maintain your faith in the Risen Christ whom you really do not see or hear?   In what specific ways do you strengthen your faith?
Question for Children:  Even though you can't see him with your eyes, how do you "see" Jesus in others?

Gospel for April 30, 2017   Luke 24:13-35
Key Passage:  And it happened that while He was with them at table He took bread, said the blessing, broke it, and gave it to them.   With that their eyes were opened and they recognized him, but he vanished from their sight.
Question for Adults: Share about great meals you've been part of, ones which are memorable to you.
Question for Youth: The disciples recognized Jesus in the breaking of bread.   How have you experienced Jesus at Mass in the breaking of the Eucharistic bread?   How have you experienced Jesus at meals and with friends and family?
Question for Children: What is your favorite time to share a meal with your family?
