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 March 26, 2017   John 9:1-41
Key Passage: Jesus said, "While I am in the world, I am the light of the world."
Question for Adults: Share how you, as a child of the light, in the power of Christ, produce goodness, justice, and truth for the world.   What specific actions do you take to do this?
Question for Youth: Jesus helped a blind man see and He helps each of us see the world differently.   How do you see differently because you believe?
Question for Children:  What are the things that Jesus wants you to do as His friend?

Gospel for March 19 2017   John 4:5-42
Key Passage:  Jesus answered and said to her, "Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again; but whoever drinks the water that I shall give will never thirst; the water I shall give will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life."
Question for Adults: When you are tempted to try to satisfy your "thirst for meaning" through some other means, what keeps you coming back to the living water of intimacy with Christ?   Through what means do you experience Christ's power in your life: Sacraments?  Scripture?   Prayer?   Others?
Question for Youth: Jesus revealed Himself to an outcast of society.   How can you be "living water" to the outcasts of your school?   Society?  The world?
Question for Children: How do you experience Jesus helping and loving you?
