Religious Education for Children

All students MUST be registered BEFORE coming to class. Registrations will NOT be accepted on Sunday mornings. Registrations take place at the rectory office, Monday - Friday 9:00am to 4:00pm.

The goal of this ministry is to assist parish parents in the education and faith formation of their children. Religious education classes are held from September to May on Sundays in the school from 9:00 to 10:15am. We include grades 1 through 7 (C-1, first year Confirmation prep).
In person first time registration (at the rectory office) begins in the Spring and continues all summer. A copy of the child’s Baptismal Certificate is required at the time of registration.  Families must be (or become) registered members of the parish.

Tuition

$100.00 – one child
$130.00– two children
$170.00 – three or more children

Children’s Liturgy of the Word

This ministry involves leading the children from the church after the Opening Prayer of the Mass. Each week, from September to June, the children are led from the church to the church basement, during the 10:30am Mass. This gives the children the experience of understanding the Gospel message and participating in the Eucharistic celebration at their own level. The children return to the church before the Offertory to continue the celebration.

Special  Needs
We also have a class for those children with special needs. The catechists are from a family with a special needs child and have been catechists for special needs children for many years. One of the catechists, Paul, has his degree in Behavioral Analysis. Children will receive general faith formation and religious education, but can also be prepared for the sacraments of Reconciliation, Communion and Confirmation.
