The goal of our Elementary Religious Education Program is to bring the “Good News” of faith to the Catholic children attending public schools through a catechetical program. This program teaches basic Catholic beliefs, prepares children for the reception of the sacraments and encourages them to practice the Faith at home and in the community.

Class Schedule

September thru June, Grades 1 thru 8 on Sundays 8:30am – 9:50am followed by attendance at the 10:00am Mass for all students. The students are dismissed at the conclusion of the Mass.
