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 2017-2018, 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 July 16, 2017   Mt 13:1-23
Key Passage: Jesus said, "But the seed sown on rich soil is the one who hears the word and understands it who indeed bears fruit and yields a hundred or sixty or thirty fold.
Question for Adults: Using the parable in this reading describe how faith has been planted in your life.   How long did it take for that seed to land on good soil?
Question for Youth:  When the sower sowed his seed, not all of it fell in good soil.   What can you do in the coming week to make sure that you are open to God in your life?   What is getting in the way of your being good soil?
Question for Children:  Who helps you to grow deeper in your faith?

Gospel for July 23, 2017   Mt 13:24-43
Key Passage: Jesus said, "The kingdom of heaven may be likened to a man who sowed good seed in his field.   While everyone was asleep, his enemy came and sowed weeds all through the wheat an then went off."
Question for Adults: How would you describe the weeds which have polluted your own faith or the faith of people whom you know.   What are you doing (bad habits, poor choices, etc.) that you need to weed out?   Who can help you with that?
Question for Youth:
Question for Children: What are the things that keep you from being a friend of Jesus?
