RE in Manson begins with the MNW school year and ends in early May.
Grades K-7 meet one time a month, mass is at 6 pm and class from 6:30-7:30pm, for a night of Family Formation. Each grade attends class with the catechist in their classroom, the parent session is taught by the Director of Religious Ed. The next 3-4 lessons are taught at home, allowing parents, who know how their children learn best, to teach their children at a time that is most convenient for their family. Parents are given all materials needed for each lesson. Some families have included grandparents in the teaching and learning, creating family time that is cherished by all generations.

During school years that begin as an odd year, 7th and 8th grade will meet together as the first year of confirmation, in school years that begin with an even number 8th and 9th grade will have class together and be confirmed the following spring.

High School students, Catholic Youth Outreach (CYO), meet about 3 times per month, twice a month we will Explore Our Faith in the body of the church. These gatherings will be opportunities to learn more about their faith, to share insights, to ask questions, to discuss issues, and to strengthen our relationships with one another. They will also have one session each month in which they experience Living Our Faith by helping others.

* Note during the 2020-21 school year the Faith Formation group is meeting in cohorts over two weeks to spread out the families and allow for social distancing.
