Religious Education Program

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-8).
