Catechesis of the Good Shepherd

Elementary Education



A note from Katie Tipton, DRE: 

Amid growing concerns for the health and safety of our brothers and sisters in Christ, we have decided to implement a few changes to the scheduled school year.

Religious Education classes (including the Sunday Bible Study for middle school students) will follow CCISDs schedule. As of right now CCISD will come back into session on March 23rd, therefore Religious Education will begin again on March 22nd. If there are any changes to this schedule I will notify you as soon as I am made aware.

First Communion Meditations have changed somewhat. The meditation on Friday, March 20th has been cancelled. Meditations are now March 27th, April 3rd and April 17th. The March 27th meditation will be an at home work sheet with the work of the child, the white garment, possibly being sent home as well. More information about meditations will follow.

First Communion practice on March 29th has been rescheduled for April 19th.

I will continue to keep everyone informed of the changes made to Religious Education. If you have any questions or concerns please contact me at the parish office number 361-991-5146 or email at

Please be safe! Stay home, practice good and healthy habits, and exercise caution when out and about.

I am praying for all of you,

God Bless,

Katie Tipton, DRE

“If we want to help the child grow near to God, we should, with patience and courage... This requires study and prayer. The child himself will be our teacher if we know how to observe him.”
