RELIGIOUS EDUCATION PROGRAM
The mission of the St. Gilbert Religious Education Program is to provide an atmosphere that supports families as they develop a relationship to God and the Church community. As Catechists, parents, and students, we celebrate, learn and share our faith in God. Through our actions and with the direction of the Spirit we witness to the Gospel and its command to "Go into the whole world and proclaim the Gospel..." (Mark 16:15)

LETTER FROM SR. DONNA
Welcome to the Saint Gilbert Religious Education Program! I am Sister Donna Schmitt, the Director of Religious Education.
Parents as the primary educators have already given the young people a love for God and the Catholic faith. The Religious Education Program is here to assist you with teaching your child about God, the scriptures, and the Church.
This Website gives you information about the Religious Education Program as well as our responsibilities and commitment to each other. In working together, we can assist and encourage the young person in making a life-long faith commitment. The members of the Catechetical Staff are excited about the opportunity to share the Catholic faith with your children. They are dedicated and committed to proclaiming the mysteries of our faith, to build the Church community, to encourage worship and prayer, and to motivate service to others.
If you have any comments or questions about the program, please contact the Religious Education office, (847) 223-3071.
