Middle School Religious Education
Grades 6 to 8
St. Thomas More provides an opportunity for Middle School students to grow in faith by developing a meaningful relationship with Jesus, a better understanding of our Catholic tradition and help to plant roots for the adult years. We use the Edge program, which includes instruction, fellowship, prayer, service, and fun.
Middle School classes are held on Sunday evenings from 6:30-8:00 pm during the school year. See the table below for specific class dates. Other activities/dates/times are listed in the newsletter which can be found in the Documents to Download section below. Retreat forms are included in the newsletter.
Are you having RE scheduling problems? We offer a Home Study program for grades 6-8. This would be a great way to spend quality time with your child while teaching them Religious Education. The fee for materials is $20/child. Inquire at RE Registration or contact the RE office.
Older Student Sacrament Preparation Program (OSSP)
Does your child over the age of 7 need to receive the sacraments of Baptism, Reconciliation or Eucharist? This program is designed for any student in grades 3-8 who has not received these sacraments. Children need to be registered in Religious Ed classes. There will be a mandatory meeting on October 16, at 6:30pm, in Brennan auditorium, for parents to go over the process. Please contact Cynthia Jordan for more information (512-258-1944).
For more information on any of our programs please contact our Middle School Coordinator, Andrea Cochran, 512-258-1944 x-228.
