Religious Education

Religious Education registration for 2018-2019 has begun. This year, our program will largely be staying the same as it was last year, with grades K-8 attending classes on Sunday mornings and the High School program taking place on Sunday afternoons (beginning with Mass). Classes will begin on Sunday, September 9th. We ask that the registration forms be submitted as soon as possible, so that we can finalize preparations and materials for classes. We are still in need of volunteers to be catechists and helpers in the classroom. Please let me know if you are interested in helping out.
