Hi everyone, I am Denise Godinez.  I have the opportunity to be the DRE here at QHR for the last 15 years.  

My husband Victor and I have been in the parish for approximately 35 years, and our children went through SOR.  

I love working with young students and helping them learn how GREAT and IMPORTANT they are to this world.  It is through them that our Faith and Love for God and from God continues so strongly.

Students will be given a textbook to take home. They will need to bring their textbook with them when attending in person sessions.

Grade Level Expectations

These prayers help provide us with a glimpse into the foundations of our Faith and a base from which our children can learn how to live their Faith. 

 In our religious education classes, we begin and end with a prayer.  We ask that Parents help teach these prayers and lists to your children.  Praying regularly at home will help them to master the required prayers for use in their lifetime.  The Archdiocese offers guidelines of prayers to be learned at each grade level. 

This list is also includes all the previous years grade level expectations
