Hi everyone, I am Denise Godinez. I have the opportunity to be the DRE here at QHR for the last 16 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.
Just a few things about me...I have been a part of QHR since I was born. I started helping out in SOR when I was in high school and never looked back.
I'm a teacher bu day as well - just started by 25th year.
Eighth Grade will be using the Alive in Christ textbook by Our Sunday Visitor and Decision Point video series by Dynamic Catholic.
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.
