Religious Education Classes
Religious instruction classes for Kindergarten through 8th grade begin after the 9:30 Mass on Sundays and run until 12:00 noon. A snack is provided. Children ages 3 through 6 may enroll in the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Program which takes place at the same time on Sunday mornings. This approach to the religious formation of children is rooted in the Bible, the liturgy of the Church and the educational principles of Maria Montessori. This hands on approach is for ages 3 – 6. A snack is provided.
