We are looking for teen volunteers to help in the classrooms! Please contact Elaine Phillips if interested.
Our Parish Religious Education program provides classes for students four years old through 5th grade for Catholic children not enrolled in parochial schools. Volunteers are needed to teach and are given all teaching materials required.
Please note there is no longer a 3 yr. old class being offered, but parents are invited to make use of our nursery during the 9:30am mass.
If your child is in 2nd grade and preparing for First Eucharist, a copy of the baptismal certificate is needed at the time of registration.
* Please Note: Religious Education classes start Sunday, August 28th. Late registrations will be accepted until Sunday, September 11, 2016. No registrations will be accepted after September 11th.
