Religious Education

Our mission is to teach children the Catholic Christian faith on an age appropriate level and to empower them to live the Gospel in their lives, share their faith with others, and serve humanity.  We prepare our youth to receive the Sacraments that provide the grace necessary to live Christian lives. Religious instruction classes for grades kindergarten through 8th grade meet weekly from 9:45am – 10:45am on Sunday mornings.

Catechists and Catechetical Aides are always in high demand. Please consider offering your Time & Talents to this worthy Ministry.

Catechists teach religious education to children in pre-school through grade 9. Catechetical aides assist the lead catechist in the classroom.

Adults and confirmed high school students with a good knowledge of Catholic beliefs and practices, and a willingness to share their Catholic faith with children, may serve as catechists and aides. The time commitment is (90) minutes per week plus preparation time. Religious Education classes are Sunday mornings from 9:45a to 10:45a.
