The Religious Education Program has grown to more than 600 students in grades 1 - 8. This catechetical ministry works because of the dedication of a large team of adult and young adult volunteers who want to share their faith with the children of the parish. The time commitment ranges from 2 hours per year to a few hours a month. Volunteers are needed in all areas of this vibrant ministry. Please prayerfully consider volunteering and if interested click here for the registration form.
