Religious Education Program

2020-2021 Online registration is now ready!

Goals

  • To prepare the children to receive the Sacraments of Eucharist (Holy Communion) and Confirmation.
  • To foster a partnership with parents in their children’s journey of faith.
  • To assist everyone who would like to know more about the Catholic Faith.

Parents/Guardians' Role in the Program

  • Understand the vision, mission, and goal of the program.
  • Support the program by actively participating in the Church activities which are part of the REP’s curriculum.
  • Work closely with the Catechist by ensuring that your child is dropped off before the class starts and picked up promptly upon dismissal.
  • Volunteer so you may see firsthand how and what your child is learning. This is highly encouraged.
  • Pray with your child and make your home a nurturing environment for faith to grow (a family that prays together, stays together and grows in faith together).
