NATIVITY OF MARY PARISH
Coordinator of Religious Education
The CRE for St. Mary’s Parish is primarily responsible for the religious education and formation of the parish children, Pre-K through 12, who do not attend our parish school.
As a member of the Pastoral Staff, the CRE will have pastoral and professional interaction that will provide guidance and support for the RE program. The parish will provide secretarial assistance and other support, as needed.
The parish has many volunteers – all of whom are in place -- who catechize and support the work at all levels. The CRE will guide and nurture them, to maintain a healthy and effective program. In addition to growth in the faith, the CRE will supervise preparation for Holy Eucharist, Reconciliation, and Confirmation.
The pastor is the direct supervisor of the CRE, which is a ten-month position, beginning immediately, at the rate of 20 hours per week.
Prayerful attention by the CRE to her, or his, own relationship with Jesus Christ and growth in the Holy Spirit is an important aspect of this calling. We are all on the journey.
