Religious Education for Students in Pre-K to 10th Grade

For our Children as they Learn about their Faith

“But Jesus called for them and said, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs.'”
Luke 18 : 16 - 17


Religious Education Formation

Due to the COVID restrictions still in effect Grades Pre-K through 11 will have two options to choose from:

Remote Catechesis (via Google Classroom) or Family-Centered Catechesis (Home Schooling)

Please inform the Religious Education office of your preferred option.  For the Family-Centered Catechesis option, weekly lesson plans are to be submitted to the Religious Ed office monthly.  Any questions or concerns please contact the Religious Ed Office at (724) 981 – 9447.
