First Eucharist and Confirmation.
Traditional classes are offered with "special assistance" for students who have moderate learning,
reading and/or hearing disabilities, attention span deficit, hyper activity, etc. As all of our classes are staffed by volunteers, a small teacher/student ratio and more hands-on activities enable the information to be passed on. These small
classes also enable the same activities and opportunities, while using more of those skills and talents that your students possess.
Parents must inform us if their child requires special assistance.
