Catechesis

Preschool through Grade 8 Catechesis

Our Sunday morning religious education program is for preschool children through 8th grade.  The age specific groups meet on Sunday mornings after 9:00AM Mass from 10:15AM until 11:15AM. During the one-hour session each Sunday, your child(ren) will have the Gospel lessons explained to them at their individual age level(s) and will learn the foundations of the Catholic faith. Tuition is $40 per child and includes the winter and spring sessions as well as session materials. Session dates are listed in the registration materials.
