Parish Religious Education Program


A big “thank you” to all those who sent the information requested to help with the PREP annual audit for the Archdiocese. I am very grateful! As we approach the season of Lent which be-gins on Ash Wednesday, February 17th, I have sent a packet of materials that will be helpful in making this time meaningful for the children and their families. I will email some helpful suggestions to the families in the next week or so! This packet will replace the February Parent Session which is usually live-streamed.

Let us continue to pray for an end to the pandemic and for all those adversely affected in any way by this pandemic.

Please contact Sister Rita Marian with any questions or concerns at rmangelilli@olastrafford.org or 610-688-6590.
