Children’s Religious Education (Grades 1-6)

Religious education for elementary grades is offered in English on Saturdays from 10:00 AM through 11:30 AM, and in Spanish on Thursdays from 5:00 PM through 6:30 PM.  There are three (3) types of programs:

  • Basic  Faith Formation (Grades 1-6) – This is for children who are registering for religious education for the first time and who have been baptized already. It is their first year of preparation for the Sacrament of Eucharist (Holy Communion).

  • Sacramental Preparation (Grades 2-6) – This is for children who have completed their Basic Faith Formation. It is their second year of preparation for the Sacrament of Eucharist (Holy Communion).

    :  Parents who have children under the Sacramental Preparation program are encouraged to attend the Parents Sacramental Preparation program.

  • Intermediate Faith Formation (Grades 3-6) – This is for children who are continuing their religious education after their First Holy Communion.
