We are happy to partner with you in the experience of faith formation. Your child is learning important lessons in our classrooms. These lessons can become even more meaningful when reinforced with daily faith that is lived each day at home, and on Sunday in family worship.  We thank you for being the first, the most important, and the most excellent catechist for your child.  We appreciate working with you and your child/ren in the important mission of planting seeds and growing in faith.  Religious Education Classes for grades 1-8 are as follows for the 2018/2019 year.
