Welcome to Religious Education! We are excited to partner with you, the family, to nurture the faith of each child and teen.

If you are new to having a child participate in Religious Education, we have created this chart to answer the question “what program should they sign up for?” Additionally, this chart provides guidance to know when your child/teen will have the opportunity to prepare to receive the sacraments of First Reconciliation (also called Confession or Penance) and First Eucharist (also called First Communion).
