Religious Education

Welcome! We'd love to have you join us for Religious Education classes.

Classes are for children not enrolled in a Catholic school. The role of the program is to assist families in teaching their youth about our Catholic faith by: providing opportunities for family development in knowing Jesus Christ, building a relationship with God and others, and living a moral and Christian lifestyle.

We have several different options this year as far as the religious education of your children. We are offering limited availability in our new Catechesis of the Good Shepherd program on Sunday morning and Monday afternoon/evening. This program uses the Montessori method to bring children into a relationship with Jesus through work in an atrium environment. The environment supports their growth in learning about Jesus through hands on materials and the use of bible stories. Our Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Atriums are in the back of the John Bosco Center.  More information can be found online at www.cgsusa.org.
