"Children are precious gifts sent from Heaven" - anonymous 


Saint Michael Parish Religious Education, Grades 1 through 8

Psalm 127:3  "Behold, children are a gift of the Lord, the fruit of the womb is a reward."


The religious education ministry is involved in instructing our children in grades 1 though 8 in the Catholic Faith including the Sacraments of First Confession and First Holy Communion.

Our catechists share their faith, their experiences and their love for God with your child.  

We offer an additional Sacramental Program for children in grades 3 through 8 who have not yet received their Sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion.  Call the religious education office for more information regarding this program.

Participation - Grades 1-6, Sundays 8:00 - 9:45 AM (Class time 8:00 - 8:45 AM, Mass 9:00 - 9:45 AM) Our program encompasses both class time and Family Mass as one.
