Greetings: My name is Helen Teifer and I am the Religious Education Administrator for the Shrine Church of St. Jude. On this page you will find information about formal Religious Education for children. Currently Shrine Church of St. Jude Religious Education is for children in Grades 1 - 8.
On the side, under the Blessed Mother you will find various resources. I periodically add and change.
Below is information about our formal Religious Education for children. Under the Sacrament heading there is detailed information for each sacrament. (under construction)
CHILDREN'S FORMAL RELIGIOUS EDUCATION INFORMATION *
* Catholic parents who wish to have their children receive the sacraments are required to send their children to formal religious education yearly starting with the first grade.
* All children are expected to attend Sunday Mass. Unfortunately, times have changed. If you are uncomfortable bringing your child to Mass on Sundays during the pandemic the best alternative is to watch the Mass online. There are many options. Shrine Church of St. Jude's Sunday Mass is live streamed on Facebook every Saturday evening. Under resources you may view a Children's Mass from CatholicFoundation.sg.
* Two complete years are required before the reception of the sacrament of
First Holy Communion.
* Confirmation - Students must be in at least 8th Grade and have had 2 years
of formal Religious Education (Catholic school or Religious Ed) to be eligible to
receive this sacrament. Confirmation Class for 2021/2022 school year will begin
in October. (Date and how will be determined at a later date.)
