Religious Education / Catechism

Religious Education for ages 3-16 is a 2 year program. Classes run from September - May for the 2 years.

Children over age 7-16 and who are in need of baptism will be considered full initiation students. Children age 7-16 who are already baptized will be considered sacramental candidates. Classes meet once weekly. Mass attendance is a must, along with community service and attendance of 2 retreats.

Students age 3-6 are considered to be pre-formation and are enrolled in our Catechesis of the Good Shepherd program that has a Montessori teaching style with hands on learning.
