  • To LIVE as Christ lived.

St. Mary's Religious Education Program seeks to reach children from kindergarten through high school by proclaiming Christ’s message through instruction, prayer experiences, and the sacraments of Eucharist, Reconciliation, and Confirmation. We realize that our ministry is accomplished in partnership with the parents who are the primary catechists. Together we will proclaim Christ’s message, help develop our Christian community, lead the students in prayer and worship, and motivate them to do Christian service.

Sacraments: First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion are celebrated during 2nd Grade. Confirmation is celebrated in the spring of 10th grade.

Schedule: Classes are held on Sunday mornings during the school year, from 9:10 - 10:20AM at St. Mary School.
