Parish Religious Education (PRE)

The purpose of Religious Education is to foster a deeper understanding of the Catholic Faith.  Because developing such an understanding is a life-long process, the Religious Education Ministry provides programs for preschoolers through adults of all ages, as well as those seeking membership in the Catholic Church.

Kindergarteners through 8th graders attend PRE classes Sunday mornings throughout the school year from 8:45 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.

Sacramental classes are offered for students preparing for First Communion and Confirmation.

Class attendance includes students saying the Rosary with their class in church at 10:05 a.m. Students will be dismissed to sit with   their parents prior to mass.

Students should have access to a Catholic Bible and the Catechism of the Catholic Church.

PRE instructors are:

Religious education is an essential part of parish life. However, participation of one hour of religious education each Sunday is not enough to communicate the beliefs, values and practices which make us Catholic Christians. Our religious education classes are designed to build upon your child's experiences during regular Mass attendance, participation in the sacraments, and most importantly, spiritual life at home.

As parents you are the best teachers of your children. Become involved in the process of teaching your child what it means to be Catholic by sitting in on a class, asking questions, assisting the teachers, helping your child study and actively participating in parish life.
