Discipleship Classes: General Information

We offer a variety of religious education classes for children and youth age 3 years old through 12th grade to assist parents in echoing the Catholic faith  and sharing the Good News of the Gospel with their children. It is the expectation of the Church that we continue to grow in faith throughout our lives. We offer several options at various times (see below) to best meet each family’s needs.

To register,  Discipleship Registration Form 2018-2019 and any additional forms as needed (Medical Action Plan is a form that must be signed by a physician for any child with severe allergies.) Print them and bring to church or mail with payment to:
