Religious Education

As a people of faith, we are called to continue the mission of Jesus:

  • to spread the Good News of God’s love
  • to establish the reign of God on earth

We do this by proclaiming and teaching God’s Word, worshiping and celebrating the sacraments as a family.Our church family does this  by offering a comprehensive religious education process that will help foster faith, morals, family and friendship.We will do this in a safe, caring and hospitable environment while supporting parents and guardians as the first and primary educators of the child’s Catholic faith.

Religion Classes

Classes are offered on Saturday mornings from 9:00 AM until 11:00 AM for children in grades 1-12.

There is a  two-year preparation requirement for the sacraments of  Reconciliation and Communion  which occurs in 2nd Grade and Confirmation which occurs in the 10th grade.
