The Religious Program in the parish meets on Wednesday evenings and Sunday mornings. The 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th grade classes meet on Wednesday evening from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. and the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders meet on Sunday mornings. All children attending public school in the area are welcome and are encouraged to be with us to grow in their Catholic Faith.
We follow a graded curriculum for each year so that the total spiritual development of the child is given the opportunity to grow and blossom. The Sacraments of Reconciliation/Communion and Confirmation are the focus of the 2nd and 7th graders respectively.
Our Religion teachers all are volunteers and are called Catechists which means, in Greek, echo of God. Our Catechists are devoted people... college students, mothers and fathers, all who feel the call of God to spread the Good News of Jesus not only in their own families, but also in their Parish Community family.
We celebrate our Faith at Sunday Liturgy where God's presence is made known to us in his Holy Word and in the Eucharist. Prayer, reading the Bible, actively participating in class and a weekly class Mass involves the children in their Faith to their greatest potential. As the children sing, "We are the Church, Happy to be the Children in God's Family, We are spreading the good news, We are feeding the hungry, We are building the Kingdom of God on Earth."
