“Train the young in the way they should go; even when old, they will not swerve from it.” -Proverbs 22:6

Faith formation is primarily the responsibility of the parents. Our parish Religious Education Program builds on this foundation and is an integral part of the larger catechetical ministry of the Catholic Church.

The Religious Education Office is located in the school. You may enter through Door 1.
