Children’s Religious Education classes will be Wednesday evenings, 7-8 PM, from mid-September through early-May in the Parish School.  This change from Sunday mornings has been inspired by a desire to free up Sundays for family rest and worship, as well as a hope to deepen parish involvement by coinciding Religious Ed with the adult Bible study and monthly potluck series on Wednesday nights.

Led by caring and trained volunteers, children experience Christ’s love for them and the Church through Bible teaching, prayer, living the life of discipleship, and encountering God through live-giving sacraments.

2018-19 Registration for Grades 1 through 8

Religious Education classes are on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Parents, students and catechists meet at 6:30 p.m. in the south cafeteria of the school. After prayer and announcements, children will proceed to the classrooms with their catechists. Children will be dismissed from class at 7:30 p.m. from the south cafeteria doors.

The registration fee is $45 for the first child and $10 for each additional child enrolled. Please bring payment to the parent meeting, or it can be sent to the parish office prior to September 5th:
