Youth Faith Formation Family – Covenant of Expectations
St. John Neumann feels it important to state these expectations so that we all recognize the dignity inherent in each of us.

Rights of Youth Faith Formation Families (including Students, Parents, Volunteers, and Staff)
Each person in our parish family has the right to:
  • Be treated in a manner that exemplifies Christ’s command to “love one another.”
  • Be treated respectfully by each other.
  • Grow in faith in a caring and positive atmosphere.
  • Receive support when needed.
  • Expect that the parish will provide a strong faith-based curriculum.
  • Work with others who come to class prepared for each lesson.
  • Have every opportunity to excel in a safe environment.
Responsibilities of Youth Faith Formation Families (including Students, Parents, Volunteers, and Staff)
Each person in our parish family has the responsibility to:
  • Treat others in a manner that exemplifies Christ’s command to “love one another.”
  • Show respect to each other by using good manners.
  • Contribute to a caring and positive environment.
  • Seek support in an honest and appropriate manner.
  • Approach each lesson with a willingness to learn and grow in faith.
  • Come to class prepared for each lesson.
  • Volunteers and staff commit to complying with the safe environment requirements of the Diocese of Rockford.
  • Abide, to the best of our abilities, by the Precepts of the Catholic Church (the minimum in prayer and living a moral life):
    • Attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation
    • Confess serious sin at least once a year
    • Receive Holy Communion at least once a year during the Easter season
    • Observe days of fast and abstinence
    • Provide for the needs of the Church

Student Code of Conduct
Each catechist will discuss with students the specific behavioral expectations for their class. Most misbehavior will be addressed at the classroom level. Catechists will contact parents and RE Office staff if the student’s behavior impacts classroom instruction. If a student’s behavior continues to impact the class, the RE Office staff may choose to meet with student or with the catechists, parents, and student in a dialogue.

Behaviors that negatively impact instruction include, but are not limited to:
  • Disrespectful and rude behavior.
  • Use of foul or inappropriate language.
  • Refusal to comply with instructions from catechists or staff.
  • Being in any parish space or leaving parish grounds without permission.
  • Using cell phones or other electronics in a manner that detracts from the learning or prayer situation.
More serious infractions can result in required meetings between RE Office staff and the Pastor and parents, students, and catechist, or can result in movement from an on-site class to the home study program. These infractions include but are not limited to:
  • Bullying, fighting, threatening or harassing
  • Vandalism of parish property, stealing, smoking, using drugs or alcohol
  • Possession of drugs or alcohol on parish grounds
  • Possession of a weapon on church grounds or at parish sponsored events
