Religious Education

  • Barbette Cullen-Director of Religious Education
  • Diane Castro-Coordinator of Religious Education for grades 7-10

Our Religious Education Program is structured to enhance the standards and values that children first learn at home; prepares them for a worthy and reverent reception of the Sacraments of Reconciliation, First Holy Communion and Confirmation; and, most of all, helps them grow spiritually and find their own identity as witnesses of Christ to the world.

Our program seeks to provide an environment that will allow children to learn, experience, and grow as members of our faith community.  Every child is expected to be courteous and respectful to each other and all adults.  We thank our families for your example and all that you provide for your children within the home.  With your help, our Religious Education program will foster an environment that promotes reverence, love and respect for God, Church and each other. We consider it a privilege to be working with our parish families in their child’s faith formation. What a beautiful gift our Catholic faith is!

“The Christian home is the place where children receive the first proclamation of the faith. For this reason the family home is rightly called “the domestic church,” a community of grace and prayer, a school of human virtues and of Christian charity.

~CCC paragraph 1666
