Religious Education

The parish Religious Education Program provides catechetical instruction for children in public schools from pre-school through high school. The program also provides for sacramental preparations for the sacraments of Reconciliation, Eucharist, and Confirmation. It is a requirement that students be enrolled in a Religious Education class prior to receiving the sacraments of Eucharist and Confirmation.  First Eucharist and Reconciliation are celebrated in Grade 2 and Confirmation in Grade 8.  Therefore, regular attendance in 1st grade and 7th grade is a requirement to being accepted into the Sacramental Preparation Program for Grades 2 and 8 the following year.

 

All 9th – 12th grade students are welcome to attend our High School  Formation  which meets Wednesdays 6:00 - 7:30 PM in the Youth Ministry room. There is also a High School Faith Enrichment program that meets Sundays from 10:00 - 11:00 AM  (There is no fee for the high school classes).   All Preschool through grade 1 classes  are based on the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd.
