Religious Education

Religious Education is a life long process in which we seek to know God

and respond to His call in prayer and service to others.

Our Faith Formation Program includes Religious Education for children, teens and adults.  

Religious Education for Children is for those who are aged 6 to 13 who have been baptized and are studying to receive the sacraments of Holy Eucharist and Confirmation.  Children attend classes once a week for an hour and a half from September to the beginning of June in our Academy school building.  This program supports the parents role as primary teachers of the faith.  Accomodations for special needs will always be honored and explored.

Rite of Christian Initiation adapted for Children is for those children aged 8 to 12 who have not received the sacrament of Baptism.  The program consists of three years of study.  After intensive study they are welcomed into the church at the Easter Vigil Liturgy.
