ACCOMPANYING STUDENTS & FAMILIES TO

CLOSER COMMUNION WITH CHRIST

CURRICULUM

 

The ORE develops and maintains teaching standards for religious education in diocesan parishes and schools, publishes the Bishop's approved curricula series.

SACRAMENTAL PREP

 

The ORE publishes the Bishop's guidelines for sacramental preparation, and works to assist pastors and parish coordinators in the work of bringing people closer to Christ and into the sacramental life of His Church. This includes assisting with preparation for First Communion, Confirmation, and for the Sacraments of Initiation received through the Rite of Christian Initation for Adults, the RCIA. 

SAFE ENVIRONMENT

The ORE assists parishes in implementing safe environment training for students in religious education and sacramental preparation programs. On this website, documents for safe environment training may be downloaded for use with students, catechists, administrators, and parents. To keep in compliance with USCCB standards, parish pastors and coordinators submit annual safe environment reports to the ORE.
