Dear Families of St. Lawrence Catholic Church,
With the restrictions that have been created for schools amid the COVID-19 Pandemic, our parish has been creating an alternative plan for the Religious Education program this coming year.
Until the state is clear of the Pandemic Stages, we will be utilizing a form of Remote Learning for RE. This plan will be available on our website for families to access throughout the year.
Remote Learning will work as follows: Each month, we will begin with a Zoom Lesson led by one (or more) of our teachers. This Zoom lesson will be for entire families to participate in. We would explore and discuss a monthly topic. After the monthly zoom lesson, we will have three to four activities that will support the monthly topic. These activities will be leveled to Early Elementary and Late Elementary/Junior High. Families will be able to complete these activities at their leisure throughout the month.
To assist our second grade class in preparing for the Sacrament of First Holy Communion, we may schedule in person practices. During any in person activities, masks must be worn and social distancing will be practiced.
In August, we will release an online registration for families. If you do not feel comfortable registering online, you can access the registration form from our website to print and scan/mail to Tiffany Staab. This year will not have a Religious Education fee. There will be a one time $25 sacrament fee for those participating in First Holy Communion. Please mail checks to the Rectory at 165 E Rice Rd, South Wilmington, IL 60474.
If you have any questions about this program or would like to volunteer to assist with developing activities, please contact Anne Simms or Tiffany Staab.
Thank you for sharing your child(ren) with us and for continuing their faith formation at home.
Have a blessed day and stay safe,
Tiffany M Staab Anne Simms
