RELIGIOUS EDUCATION

Our Parish Religious Education Program assists parents in sharing our faith with their children.  We look forward to having your family join us! PREP Registration is open for grades 1-6.  Updates on Confirmation for students in the seventh grade are also below.

Parents whose children do not attend Catholic schools are encouraged to enroll their children.  Please note that instruction is necessary for public school children to receive the Sacraments of Penance, Holy Eucharist, and Confirmation.  Parishioners facilitate teaching the children.
