Class Information

Classes for the 2017-18 School Year have begun.  Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns!
Please remember that family mass attendance is a requirement for all of our religious education participants.  Your family is the first catechist when it comes to teaching your children about their faith, and the Mass is the source and summit of our spiritual lives as Catholics.  
For class calendars, please see the list at the right.

Sacrament Preparation

We look forward to helping you and your child prepare to receive the sacraments of Baptism, Reconciliation, First Communion and Confirmation.  Please make sure your child is attending class regularly so that they can fully understand and prepare for these gifts from Christ.
If your child is in their second year (or more) of classes and is preparing to receive the sacraments of Baptism, First Communion or Confirmation in the spring of 2018, you and your family are also required to attend our Family Faith Formation gatherings.  These gatherings are designed to be enjoyable for you to help you to have a deeper understanding of the sacraments so that you can experience more fully these important gifts with your children.  The classes will begin in our church (McCarthy) hall, and will split into different age groups in the school.  We offer them in English on the second Sunday of each month starting October 8th, and in Spanish on the third Sunday of each month starting October 15th (adult sessions will be in Spanish, children's sessions will be in English).
