Elementary Religious Education


Our mission is to provide a safe, warm, and welcoming environment for parents and children. Our classes are for children K through 12th grade. We provide classes for the blessed Sacraments of Baptism, First Reconciliation and First Communion. We encourage families to renew and deepen their faith by offering parents classes, as well assisting them to complete their Sacraments. When these sacraments are achieved, we promote continuing the lifelong journey that is religious education as a family. The teachers in our program are examples to our children of how to live their faith in the name of St. Francis of Assisi and our goal is to provide well-rounded faith education for all children who enter our program.
