Religious Education

"I am a small pencil in God's hand." - Saint Mother Teresa

Children in Kindergarten through 8th grade attend Religious Education (R.E.). Classes meet three times a month, September to April. Pre-school students meet once a month (we offer two different pre-school classes). Students learn about the beauty of our Catholic faith through catechetical instruction, take part in service projects, pray the Stations of the Cross, receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation, pray the Rosary, interact with saints from the past (as acted out by our Life Teen students), celebrate our patron saint, and more! Dedicated catechists from our parish instruct students and serve as witnesses to their faith. Come learn with us as we grow in the love of Christ! See the Parent Information Packet for more information.

Our R.E. program also serves as the main form of contact for our children's ministry activities. Contact us to get involved, have some fun, and grow as a parish family! We offer a Christmas Eve Narrative, Youth Choir, and more! Information for special events will go home with students throughout the school year.


Classes are held from 9:00-10:15 a.m. on Sundays.

Check out the monthly newsletters for upcoming events and activities!
