Our parish religious education program serves over 300 parish families each year. A staff of 60 volunteer catechists and aides offer religious education to approximately 450 students, grades 1 through 6. We prepare students for the Sacraments of First Penance and First Holy Communion (spring of second grade) and the Sacrament of Confirmation (fall of 7th grade). Weekly classes are offered on Wednesday evenings and Sunday mornings, September through April each year. Since a minimum of two years of formal religious education is required before receiving a Sacrament for the first time, we recommend students begin PREP classes when they begin first grade in public or private school.
