Classes for religious education are held throughout the school year for students in kindergarten through eigth grade who do not attend Catholic School. Our parish has transitioned to a full family catechesis model rather than the traditional classroom model. Father Evans and our Coordinater of Religious Education, Sarah Campbell, know what a crucial role that the family plays in the spiritual lives of children, and they believe this model will help parents to pass on the Catholic faith that they desire for their children. The sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Communion are received in the 2nd grade. This year, the 22-23 school year, is a Confirmation year for students in the 7th and 8th grades. For that reason, their schedule will be different than the other grade levels. To register for religious education, print and fill out the necessary forms below. Please turn it in to the parish office as soon as possible.
For the 22-23 school year, classes for kindergarten, 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th grades will meet the 3rd Sunday of the month from 9:00 until 10:15 am in the Holloway Center. This allows families to attend Mass at 8:00 before class or at 10:30 after class. Parents come for instruction with their children (parents will attend a class with other parents while children will be with their peers).
2nd grade will meet more frequently in preparation for First Holy Communion, as will the 7th and 8th grades for Confirmation classes.* These classes WILL NOT attend the family program as mentioned above. Second grade students will still meet from 9-10:15am, but more frequently than once a month. Seventh and eighth grade students will have class from 4-5:30pm on Sundays. Schedules for all three groups are below.
Classes begin September 19th, 2021. To register for religious education, print and fill out the form below, then turn it in to the parish office. Please know that there is a registration fee for students, but if this fee is a problem for your family, be sure to speak with Sarah Campbell to see what can be worked out.
*Students receiving sacraments this year must be eligible, meaning they must have the necessary previous sacraments. If your child is not eligable, but is in the corresponding grade level, please email Sarah Campbell to inquire about how to proceed.
