St. Paul’s Parish
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 High School. Classes meet on Wednesdays.
4:30 – 5:45 (K-5) and 6:30 – 7:45 (K-12).
Religious Education Classes will begin the year with Home-Based Catechesis.
To ensure everyone’s safety, as well as the consistency of our children’s faith formation, St. Paul’s Religious Education program will begin the year providing ONLY home-based catechesis.
In-person (Brick and Mortar) will not be offered until further notice. ONLY Remote Catechesis will be available to our families.
Parents, your children are depending on YOU to be witnesses of the faith.
Home-based Family Catechesis provides opportunities for parents to catechize their children directly, for spouses to catechize each other and for children to catechize one another and their parents. (National Directory for Catechesis #61.2)
Sacrament programs and requirements have not changed. Students must have 2 consecutive years of religious instruction prior to receiving a sacrament.
Students in Sacrament classes (RCIA, Confirmation, First Communion) will have additional activities and mandatory in-person meetings. Additional information will be sent to these families.

Faith: the Next Generation – Pass It On!
Boldly go where many have gone before and help pass on the Good News of Jesus Christ and our Catholic faith! This fall, children in grades kindergarten through grade 8, will sign up to learn more about Jesus and the Catholic faith. You can help by becoming a catechist for Faith Formation. As you nurture the faith of our young, you will learn and grow as well! As one long-time catechist put it, “I learn so much from the children!” We provide you with training, materials, and support. Classes begin September 16. If interested or for more information, contact Mimi Coleman: 249-2660 or firstname.lastname@example.org
