PARISH SCHOOL OF RELIGION FOR GRADES K – 5


 

About our Program

Our Faith Formation program provides a number of options both in-person and online to help children in Kindergarten through 5th grade grow in their relationship with God, prepare for the Sacraments, and discover the truth and beauty of the Catholic Faith. Together with parents, we are committed to helping our youth come alive in their faith and build a firm foundation in Christ that will last for the rest of their lives. Each week we offer faith formation classes for K-5 that allow children to grow in their relationship with God, learn about their Catholic Faith, and develop faith-based friendships.

 

Grades K – 1

Your little one has a unique program design to engage all their senses in learning about our faith. In-person sessions are between Sunday morning Masses; online resources are available for those wishing to complete instruction from home.

FIRST RECONCILIATION AND FIRST COMMUNION PREPARATION


Preparation for First Reconciliation and First Communion typically begins during the student’s 2nd-grade year. For both school and parish students preparing for their First Reconciliation and their First Holy Communion in 2021, we are pleased to continue to offer Signs of Grace by the Augustine Institute. This curriculum beautifully integrates both student and parent catechesis.

 

Classes for school students will be held during the school day and classes for parish students will be held on Sundays, between the morning Masses. Online options are available.

 

Register here for First Communion and First Reconciliation Sacramental Prep!

 

Students in 3rd grade and above who are in need of preparation to receive First Reconciliation and First Communion, should contact Diane Roddy to register. A separate age-appropriate preparation experience may be available to those students if we meet appropriate enrollment thresholds.

 

Please note: all students wishing to receive their sacraments in the 2020-21 year should be registered and attend their first classes no later than Monday, October 5, 2020.
