“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” (Mt 11:28-30)

„Przyjdzcie do mnie wszyscy, ktorzy utrudzeni i obciazeni jestescie, a Ja was pokrzepie. Wezmijcie moje jarzmo na siebie i uczcie sie ode Mnie, bo jestem lagodny i pokorny sercem, a znajdziecie ukojenie dla dusz waszych. Albowiem jarzmo moje jest slodkie, a moje brzemie lekkie”. (Mt 11: 28-30)

Our first grade (English program) catechist would like to share how the catechetical year is going. We will have more catechist testimonials in the coming weeks. Enjoy!

My name is Grace, I’ve been with Saint Cyril and Methodius Parish for many years, and currently I am a first grade catechist. This is my first year teaching a virtual program. At first I need to say that I was little bit nervous using this type of teaching method, since I was so use to a regular classroom setting. I want to say that I am very proud of my students. Having the opportunity to interact with them weekly just on Google Meets brings joy and satisfaction to my life.

The “My Catholic Faith Delivered” online teaching platform that we are currently using at SS. Cyril and Methodius Parish is a wonderful curriculum that helps my students deepen their relationship with Jesus Christ.

Although we certainly did not expect to find ourselves teaching RE in this fashion, we realize that it is truly a better option than watching our children grow without the opportunity to learn the teachings of our Catholic faith.

My personal opinion and experience come from both having a middle-school child who is utilizing this online tool, as well as being a Catechist who brings Religion to the homes of 1st graders.
