Our Religious Education program provides for an organized, structured environment in which the teaching and tradition of our Catholic faith can be passed on from generation to generation from pre-k through 8th grade. We prepare the second graders for their First Reconciliation, and to receive their First Holy Communion, and for our 8th grade students, the Sacrament of Confirmation. Our parish program offers many opportunities for our youth to grow in their knowledge, understanding, and the practice of our Catholic faith.
In addition to your child’s involvement in a once-weekly (Wednesday) catechetical program, it is important that religious education is supplemented by a strong family faith life that is marked by weekly mass attendance, prayer, sacrifice, and participation in the sacramental life of the Church. We encourage you to work with your children on their Religious Education lessons. Let's work together as we help our youth learn more about our wonderful Catholic faith that has been handed down to us from Jesus!
