Religious Education

Our Religious Education Program is open to all students grade one through eight who are registered members of the parish. Classes are held September through April.

The class times are:
  • Tuesday 5:00-6:15 PM Grades 1 thru 6
  • Wednesday 5:00-6:15 PM Grades 1 thru 6
  • Wednesday 7:00-8:30 PM Grades 7 thru 8

Registration for the program begins in April and ends August 1 for all re-registrations. Any new registrations must be accompanied by the child's baptismal certificate arid any transfer papers from previously attended Religious Education Programs or Parochial Schools.
Fees are based on active/inactive parishioners. An active parishioner is one who participates in the parish community, especially by attending Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation. The only way we can make the distinction is by tracking parish contribution envelopes. Family Mass attendance will be evaluated before sacraments are received.
Sacramental Preparation is a two year program. Children receiving Reconciliation and Holy Eucharist must attend classes in both the first and second grades before reception of the sacraments. Likewise, preparation for the sacrament of confirmation is also two years, seventh and eighth grades.
There is an RCIC program for children who have not attended any Religious Education classes and/or have not received the sacraments with their peers. Please call the Religious Education office for more information.
