Theme for 2021-2022
“Say the Word and My Soul Shall be Healed.”
August 1, 2021 – May 31, 2022
It is time again to register your child(ren) for the Regina Tri-Parish Religious Education Classes. I know that last year was a very different year. Thank you to all the families that did the home study program.
This year K-8 will be gathering together physically in-person for Religious Education. K-6 will meet at Regina from 6:30 – 7:30 pm. 7th and 8th grade will meet the second and fourth Sunday of most months in St. Patrick’s social hall from 6:30 – 8:00 pm. All the students will be socially distanced from one another. As of right now, masks are going to be optional because we can’t mandate masks. But with that being said I am going to HIGHLY recommend everyone to wear a mask. The cleaning crew will clean every room we use before class time. One great thing about Regina is that Regina has an air purification system throughout the whole complex!! So the Center has clean and filtered air. Yay!!
The safety and well-being of all students, teachers, and staff are of utmost importance to us. We will be following these protocols from the Regina/Diocese of Davenport COVID-19 Mitigation and Prevention Plan 2021-22.
On this website, you will find registration forms, a financial commitment form, and a calendar. Please take the time to fill out the appropriate paperwork and send them to us as soon as possible so that we can get an idea of the total number of students. We also need to know so that we can get the necessary amount of Catechists and assistants.
We would appreciate everybody’s support and would like you to invite your family, friends, and neighbors to join our Religious Education family. Please spread the word!!!
If you have any questions please let me know. You may call our office with any questions or concerns at 319-351-7638.
Our address is:
Regina Religious Education
2140 Rochester Ave.
Iowa City, IA. 52245
Hopefully, there will be an even greater depth of faith explored when you and your children share the Religious Education lessons together. I will be here to help you if you have any questions or needs until we can be together again.
Thank you for your continued commitment to growing your child’s faith.
Regina Tri-Parish Religious Education Program serves public school students who attend the parishes of
St. Mary’s, St. Patrick’s and St. Wenceslaus
The Regina Tri-Parish Religious Education Program is dedicated to providing the Catholic public school students of Iowa City with a dynamic learning environment rich in faith formation, Catholic doctrine, and religious celebration.
The Regina Tri-Parish Religious Education Program in cooperation with parents and parishes strives to provide Catholic religious education for public school students K-8. We follow Vatican II’s objectives to make faith: living, conscious, and active. We seek to create an environment where young Christians have the opportunity for a personal encounter with Jesus, spiritual growth, gaining an understanding and knowledge of the Catholic faith, and deepening respect for the dignity of others. We believe that by introducing children to Jesus Christ and fostering their relationship with Him, the children will be prepared to live the Christian life: loving God and loving others in God.
The primary goals of the Regina Tri-Parish Religious Education Program are:
1. To create a Christian atmosphere where students have the opportunity to foster and experience a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
2. To evangelize and assist the students in understanding, appreciating, and living the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church.
3. To sensitize our students to the importance of honoring the God-given dignity of human persons on both a personal and global level.
4. To provide a superior religious education program that allows for individuality in faith development.
5. To emphasize the community aspects of family and parish life.
If your child is in 2nd grade, please call the parish you are registered in for the additional upcoming meeting dates that you will need to attend at your church in order for them to receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation and First Holy Communion.
