The Religious Education Program
The Religious Education Program operates for 24 weeks during the school year for students in grades 1-8 on Sunday mornings after the 9:00AM Mass. Adult volunteers are needed to teach. Training  is provided. Advanced training and certification is not required but is offered through the Southern Region Office of Faith Formation.

First Sacraments
Preparation for these sacraments involves both parents and children. Although sacramental guidelines prefer readiness over age to determine celebration, generally children prepare for sacraments during second grade, with Penance in the Fall and Eucharist in the Spring.

Confirmation
Preparation takes place during ninth and tenth grade. During this process  CL-1students meet on Monday evenings for class sessions. CL-2 students meet on Sundays. Confirmation is celebrated in the Fall of Tenth grade. Sponsor and candidate activities, parent meetings, liturgies and retreats enhance the preparation for the Celebration of Confirmation.
