Elementary Religious Education
There are so many opportunities for you the parents and your children to discover and experience the truth, beauty and traditions of the Catholic Church together.
What are a Catholic parent's priorities?
- Teach them the ways of faith by:
- Our family's regular participation in the Sacred Liturgy.
- Form them in the ways of faith.
We take our responsibility to you seriously to help you fulfill the promises you made at your child's Baptism: to raise them in the ways of faith. We offer many options to assist you in this responsibility and thank you for letting us join your family's journey of faith.
