Parish Religious Education Program


A sincere thank you to all the parents who responded to the KidTalk lesson presentation. I am very happy with all the cooperation whether you taught the lesson or opted out. Your response was most important to me for purposes of the yearly audit!

A reminder to the parents of the Level 3 First Holy Communion Class that we will have an in-person session with the students on Saturday, April 17 from 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM. We will meet in the Sacred Heart Chapel for a bit and then go to Church for a brief practice. Also, please bring the completed banner that day so we will have it for the Mass on April 24! This is an exciting time for the students and their families – know that we are keeping you in special prayer.
