Religious Education is a key factor in the evangelization aspect of the mission of St. John Baptist de La Salle, the Founder of the Brothers of Christian Schools and La Salle Institutions worldwide. Religious Education is not merely concepts and doctrines, there must be the affective and psychomotor domains. Given the new normal and the signs of the times, it is extremely essential that religion teachers get abreast with the students who had been suddenly thrown into the digital world of education, virtual relationships and survival in all its facets. This dissertation is a pioneering study about Filipino Generation Z cohort who have undergone online Religious Education in one of the schools of De La Salle Philippines. The paper utilized the existential-phenomenological method. It was an exploration of ideas, perceptions and motivations behind conscious behaviors and responses to situations that comprise human experience. Existential because the study dwelt on the concrete situations and experiences of the students who have attended pure online Religious Education classes. Likewise the study contains a characterization, description, and discernment about the dreams and aspirations, hopes and fears of Generation Z as they survived and thrived through the global pandemic. Declaration on Christian Education, Lasallian Spirituality, Creation Spirituality and Spirituality in general were some of the references upon which the reflective narratives, textual themes, structural themes and eidetic insight were drawn. The narratives revealed how Religious Education gets across the digital natives. The rigors of phenomenology gave birth to a proposed integration program for the Institute.
