In baptism parents/guardians accept a serious responsibility on two fronts.
First is fulfilling the very serious obligation to make sure that you and your children attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation. Your must make sure your children have the opportunity to receive the sacraments of Reconciliation (Confession) and Holy Eucharist.
Second, there is an important and grave responsibility to make sure your child attends religious education classes. This obligation can be fulfilled by sending your child to a Catholic school or by helping your child complete parish religious ed classes.
At St. John Vianney CCD classes are taught by trained volunteers from the parish, all with proper child safety certification. We always welcome extra adult help with our religious education program. To volunteer, please contact our parish office at (814) 322-4789 or click here to send us an e-mail.
