The Religious Education Program for children in grades K-12, is designed for those attending non-parochial schools who are in need of structured religious education classes and preparation for the celebration of the Sacraments of First Reconciliation, First Eucharist, and Confirmation.

Diocesan Policy Regarding Religious Education


Confirmation & First Eucharist

The time has come to begin thinking about your child’s celebration
of the Sacraments of First Reconciliation (Confession), First Eucharist (Communion), and Confirmation.

These celebrations are an important part of the life of our parish community and it is our privilege to help you prepare your child for these celebrations.

Diocesan policy requires that all children attend religious education classes for at least two years before celebrating the Sacraments of First Reconciliation, First Eucharist, and Confirmation.

Therefore, children receiving these sacraments in spring, 2021 must have attended class and maintained excellent attendance this past year, 2019/2020.
