CLASSES

Kindergarten Through Fifth Grade

RE, Religious Education 

Come join us Monday evenings from 6:00 - 7:15 in the parish school.   We have great classes where we learn about our Faith with enthusiastic, experienced catechists in a program including The Saints, Sacraments, Virtues and more with games, activities, Bible stories,  and creativity.  Each activity is designed to help your child remember the lesson and to often have something to bring home to share with you.  We received a lot of positive feedback last year and we look forward to having your child join us! Registration is open, pick up a form in the church or office, or get it off of our Religious Education Page.   We will see you soon! CLICK HERE for more information and to sign up!

Children's Liturgy of the Word 

Children receive the readings in an understandable format for about 20 minutes during the 10 AM Mass. We lead them out of Mass for this and return them to you. We are currently searching for more volunteers for the rotation - no more than once a month. Come join us!

2nd to 5th graders who have only been Baptized 

Sacramental Preparation:  First Communion and First Reconciliation

Our monthly Sacramental Preparation class is for Baptized Children Second Grade and above.  This is for Public School, Catholic School, and Home-schooled children alike.  This class operates in conjunction with The Religious Education Class Monday Nights or your child's religion class at school.  It is the Second Sunday of each Month beginning September 10th from 11:30 to 1 PM.  This is a parent/child class that you take together with your children.  

Family Ministry

If your child needs Religious Education and can't come Monday evenings, the child and one parent or the whole family can come to Family Ministry Sunday mornings from 8:45 - 9:45.  Or, come if you just want to learn and spend quality time with your family.  This is a new and exciting program!

Before Kindergarten

Preschool Ministry

We will have Preschool/PreK Ministry during the 10 AM Mass except on breaks and holidays. We have a great prayer circle where we get to hold crosses and other items,  and we have story time with hands on play about our main theme. We use The Allelu Program and the children love it! Details are on the Registration form. CLICK HERE.

Toddler's Nursery

We currently don't have one but if we get enough interest we have a space and the go ahead to set up a parent co-op nursery.  Contact Jessica at the RE office to let us know if you are interested.
