Your child learns about their faith from a dedicated and enthusiastic group of teachers and aides. Religious Education is for Pre-Kindergarten (Age 4) through 8th Grade. You can volunteer to become a teacher, aide or substitute. We use great materials in our classes that make it easy to plan class activities, but we offer training as well. Summer time brings our fun-filled Vacation Bible School. Opportunities to volunteer are also available during Vacation Bible School.

Religious Education offers classes for students in grades K-8 who are not currently attending a Catholic School. Registration forms are available in the Religious Education Office and can be downloaded (see below). All students must register each year.

1st through 8th Grades meet Wednesdays from 6:45 – 8:00 pm.
Pre K through K meet Sundays from 9:30 – 10:30 am.
