Religious Education

"Continue to Grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ”          

2 Peter 3:18 Our mission with the guidance of the Holy Spirit is to seek and proclaim the sacred scripture and to educate our families in faith formation through the preparation of the Holy Sacraments.  As Jesus quoted in Matthew 19:14:“Let the children come to me and do not stop them because the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”  Our ministry is to assist families in fulfilling the universal church’s mission to evangelize and catechize our parents and their children.  Through support and training of our catechetical leaders and catechists, we are prepared to nurture the catholic faith to our parish children.  Religious Formation begins with grade 1 with on-going formation to receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation. 




Classes for Upcoming Fall Registration 2017-18

There are families in our Rel. Ed. program (grades 3- Confirmation) that have not returned their children's registration forms for September classes. Please do so as soon as possible.


Sr. Carol is meeting with First Communion parents this coming week. If you have not been notified, please call the Religious Education Office, 353-5215.


Parent meetings for grade 1 students will be on Wed., August 23 at 7 p.m. and Sat., August 26 at 8 a.m. Both meetings will take place in the Parish Center. If you have not contacted the Rel. Ed. office, 353-5215, previ-ously to pre-register your child for grade 1, please do so immediately.


Parents of any students entering gr. 3 and up who have not received the Sacrament of Confirmation (First Communion) are to contact the Rel. Ed. Office to regis-ter their child for classes. To avoid any confusion, these students have not attended classes this past school year.
