Welcome to the Religious Education Department. Our office is different and separate from the Parish Office. We help provide religious education for the children and teens of our parish community that are of age to begin their sacramental preparation of either baptism, first communion, or confirmation. Please check out the information bellow regarding our Confirmation Program. If you have any questions, please email us or call us according to our specific office hours listed bellow as well.
Our Confirmation Program is a 2 year program designed for teens who are in high school (at least in 9th grade). We also offer instruction for students who have not yet done their First Communion and/or have not yet been baptized. The classes are held on Sundays and include going to mass as a class after each instruction period. It is very important that as we support our teens faith development we instill a sense of reverence for Sunday Mass, which for us as Catholics is the highest form of prayer and worship.
Our classes for our year 1 students are from 2:30pm - 6:00pm, this includes the 5:00pm mass which they will all attend. The classes for our year 2 students are from 9:00am - 12:15pm, and this also includes the 11:15am mass which they attend. Teaching our youth the importance of faith and the priority it should take in our lives is crucial, therefore we ask parents, as our students primary teachers, to aide us in this, by making sure students are on time to class and do not miss class negligently. excessive absences and late arrivals to class will result in having to re-do the year.
The fees for the program are as follows:
Parish Contribution: 30
Service Hours: 25 can be waived if parent completes 15 service hours
Retreat Fees: 60 - 235 Every year the students are required to go on a spiritual retreat. The fee for this varies on the year of confirmation the student is completing.
If you plan on visiting us, PLEASE call before to confirm that we will be here. Our hours change occasionally depending on special church activities. We want to make sure someone is there for you.
