Religious Ed (RE) Registrations for 2021-2022:

Religoius Ed in 2020-2021:
The Religious Education program at St. John the Evangelist serves more than 500 students from Kindergarten through High School.
** Due to COVID we've made some changes to our program. We now have both In-Class offerings, and Home School offerings.
- In-Class students learn from the Faith and Life series, supplemented by the "My Catholic Faith Delivered" online program. The online program helps students continue nurturing their faith at home between In-Class sessions with activities and homework. It keeps track of quizzes and tests to help meet the Diocesan requirement for passing grades to advance to the next year.
- Our temporary Home School offering is for those whose parents, due to COVID concerns, opt to teach their children at home. These students are associated with a class, and a catechist stays in close touch with the parents to offer guidance and answer questions. Those who opt for the Home School option are always welcome to join the In-Class sessions throughout the year.
Help shape the Church's Future
Serving as a classroom assistant or catechist is a wonderful opportunity to build up the Church by guiding children and young people on their faith-journey.
If you're interested in volunteering, please complete the child protection forms and VIRTUS class (now offered electronically) through the Diocese of Arlington.

Prayer to St. Michael
Saint Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle.
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,
and do thou, O prince of the heavenly host,
by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and the other evil spirits
who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.
