Religious Education Program
Contact: Rel. Ed. Office 717-235-2439
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.
You’ll note on our 2020-2021 Registration Form that our diversified program offers the following:
• Classes for 3 year Olds through Grade 8 will be offered on both Wednesday and Thursday evenings.
• High School Rel. Ed will meet on Wed. evenings (in the Youth Ministry Room) at our Main Church.
• RCIC Class meets also on Wed. evening, offering students in Grades 3-7 the opportunity to prepare for Sacraments of Initiation.
• Our “Good Shepherd” program is available for all our 3 Year Olds, 4 Year Olds, Kindergarten and Sacrament Prep Grades 1 and 2 on Sunday mornings during our 9:00 and 11:00 Masses as well as on Wed.and Thursday evenings at 6:00pm.
