St. Paul’s Religious Education welcomes all children to our program.

It’s never too late to begin learning about your faith.

Education in the faith by the parents should begin in the child’s earliest years…Family catechesis precedes, accompanies, and enriches other forms of instruction in the faith.”  (CCC #2226)

Faith Formation is offered for students in Kindergarten through 8th Grade.  Classes meet on Wednesdays.

4:30 – 5:45 (K-5)  and  6:30 – 7:45 (K-12).

It’s time to Register for

2022-23 Religious Education

St. Paul’s offers Religious Education classes to students in Kindergarten through Eighth Grades who do not attend Catholic school.  When your child was baptized in the Catholic faith, you accepted the responsibility of bringing your child up in the teachings and traditions of the Catholic faith.  Our program helps parents meet this commitment by offering classes for our parish children attending non-parochial schools.

REGISTER EARLY!  Registrations for Religious Education need to be submitted to the Religious Education Office prior to August 25.  Any registrations received after this due date may not be processed until after the start date of September 14.  Students may not start class until their registration is processed.  Registration forms are available on the parish website under the Faith Formation tab.  Contact Mimi Coleman, DRE, for additional information:                mimistpaulre@gmail.com
