Religious Education for Children

Pre-school through High School

During a child’s baptism, the priest states, “You have asked to have your child baptized. In doing so, you are accepting the responsibility of training your child in the practice of the faith. It will be your duty to bring this child up to keep God’s Commandments as Christ taught us, by loving God and our neighbor.”

Our parish religious education program helps parents to meet this commitment by beginning religious education for children as young as three years old! We continue faith formation for our youth through their senior year in high school. After that, they have the opportunity to become part of our college student and young adult ministries. Faith formation is a lifelong activity!

Our Curriculum

Our Curriculum also includes a diocesan required child safety component for students in grades K-12. Religious Education classes are provided each week August through May. The child’s age as of August 15 and their school grade level are the basis for placement in a particular class. Parishioners serve as catechists (teachers). There are training workshops throughout the year for the teachers.
