Religious Education Classes for Grades 1 through 8 began on September 10. If you are still interested in registering your child, please contact the Office of Religious Education.

HIGH SCHOOL CCD CLASSES begin on October 22.  

All parents of high school students are encouraged to register your teen for one of two sessions. The Apologetics Class is held from 5:00 to 6:15, and our 6:30 class this year will begin with a 10-part program, “You: Life, Love and the Theology of the Body”, based on Saint John Paul II’s teachings. It addresses many of the issues teens are already exposed to via entertainment media, societal pressures, and their own interactions with each other. Separate girls and boys sections will be offered for this class. A parent information session was held on October 6-7. Please check the weekly bulletin, see the RE bulletin board and the website for updates.


October 15 – Confirmation Rehearsal at 7:00 pm for candidates and sponsors; October 16 – Confirmation Mass- Candidates and sponsors arrive at 6:00 pm; Mass begins at 7:00 pm, followed by a reception hosted by the 8th grade Confirmation classes.
