Eighth Grade

Catechist:

Hello, my name is Eric Heimkes.  I have been a member of St Timothy’s Catholic church since 2003.  I converted to the Catholic Faith in 1999.   I am married to Theresa Heimkes who teaches middle school at our parish school.   I am the father of  2 boys, one attending college at NDSU and the other attending Annandale High School.  Both spent their elementary years at St. Timothy’s school.   I believe there is nothing more important as a parent than passing on our faith to our children.  I am passionate about sharing and passing on the faith to the next generation.  I am very much looking forward to engaging with and connecting with your sons and daughters about the treasures and genius of the Catholic faith that God has given us.  I pray that I will be able to find interesting ways to share the faith with your children that will create a curiosity and desire to learn more about their faith.   Being a catechist is a new adventure that God has called me to and I’m looking very forward to the coming year.

 

Curriculum:

Christ our Life – The Mystery of the Church, the Marks of the Church, the history of the Church and the Witness of the Church.  We will be doing condensed versions of some chapters and that is because we have expanded Theology of the Body which is discovering God’s Plan for love and life.

 

A curriculum that helps young people understand the significance of their sexuality and the purpose of their lives.  Twelve lessons that explore Saint John Paul II’s Theology of the Body and its positive portrayal of sexuality as a good and essential part of life and love.
