How will you celebrate National Religious Education Week?

national religious education week

The National Catholic Education Association (NCEA) has declared November 3-9  "National Religious Education Week." What are some ways you could celebrate your parish's vibrant religious ed efforts?

1) On Sunday November 3, pray for Catholic Religious Education in the Prayers of the Faithful.

2) Purchase Our Sunday Visitor's National Religious Education Week bulletin insert as a way to call all members of your community to become involved in parish faith formation efforts. (Add it to the weekly bulletin, send copies home in weekly family folders or hand them out at Children's Liturgy of the Word.)

3) Thank those members of your parish who are involved in your formal religious education programs — Sunday School teachers, Religious Education catechists, RCIA sponsors and more!

4) Revitalize religious ed by reminding parishioners that faith formation is not just for kids. We are called to nurture and grow our Catholic faith throughout the whole of our lives. 

Order our National Religious Education Week bulletin insert here or call 800-348-2440.
