Religious Education

We have a responsibility to ourselves and one another to enter into the process of on-going formation. The spiritual journey does not end at Confirmation, it is intended to be a life long discovery for us that becomes deeper as we mature. We offer formation for all ages. We welcome you as we continue on this faith journey together.

Elementary Religious Education

There are three programs offered in elementary religious education: elementary catechesis which is attended by your children; sacramental catechesis, which is attended by parents at the same time as their children; and post communion, which is attended by children who have received their first communion.

Family Catechesis

Is a 9-month catechism program for First Communion for children from 8 to 12 years. Where the father and mother are the ones to receive the preparation to strengthen their faith and becoming the best catechists for their children, fulfilling what they promised when they were baptized. These classes are taught in a house that is assigned to the family.
