Religious Education Program

Registration begins in the spring. Registration fee is $75/child if received by July 1 ($95 after July 1).  Click here for registration form.  A consent-waiver form also needs completed for each child.  Classes begin in September and go through May.

We have a family based religious education program where we emphasize that the central time of learning for both adults and children is at weekend Mass. At Mass we learn from scripture readings, homilies, prayers, and rituals. We are nourished by the Eucharist, and experience ourselves as a member of The Body of Christ.

In addition to learning from Mass, children will receive religious education in classes offered by the parish as well as from lessons completed at home. Parents are invited to teach or help with these classes.

Kindergarten-1st Grade

Children learn at home and go to Mass on Saturday or Sunday. They may attend Children’s Liturgy during the 10 am mass. Parents teach prayers, Bible stories, and morals. If religious education books are desired, they are available for $20.
