Are you new to our parish?

If you are new to our program please send copies of the certificates for all sacraments your child has received to the Religious Education office.
Is your child attending a Catholic school?

If your child attends a Catholic school they are not required to attend religious education classes at St. John's. However, we want to make sure that they are in our database so that we can include them in any grade specific activities, including sacramental preparation. Typically, First Reconciliation and First Communion are received in grade 2 and Confirmation is received in grade 10. Preparation for these sacraments is done in your parish of record.
Home School Information

If our schedule of classes does not meet your needs, you may opt to home school your child/children. You will be given the materials needed and offered whatever support you require. The children's completed textbook must be returned to the Religious Education office and they may then progress to the next grade level.
Has your child missed a year or two of Religious Education?

If your child has not consistently attended Religious Education classes you should contact the Religious Education Office. Together we can help your child prepare to participate at their current grade level. Religious Education is a continuous program beginning in grade 1 and continuing through grade 10 when the Sacrament of Confirmation is offered.
