Attention Grade One Parents:

Religious Education for First Communion is a two-year program which usually corresponds with the child’s first and second grades in school, but can also correspond with the child’s second and third grade in school, depending on when they are initially registered. The first year, the students complete the book at home with their parents following our schedule. The second year, the students attend classes at the Parish Center (across from the church). more >>>
