                                    Vacation Bible School!                                                The Yellow Starfish enjoying crafts!

RE Registration is now open for the 2017-2018 school year!

We have registration materials for Religious Education classes for the 2017-2018 school year! Why Religious Education? We help to build Catholic friendships and community while deepening the faith of children. We plan hands-on, engaging events and activities throughout the year to help the children feel the vibrance of our faith! If you are not at a Catholic school, it is especially important to participate in Religious Education because we support your family's faith development.

Thank You:

Vacation Bible School: We had the most amazing week together! We couldn't have had such a wonderful time without the teens and adults who gave of their time to help teach the children. Thank you, to the best Vacation Bible School Team!!


Saints came to visit: (from L to R) St. Juan Diego, St. Teresa of Calcutta, Sts. Francis and Clare of Assisi, and St. Peter.


From "Dear Pope Francis: The Pope Answers Letters from Children Around the World:"

"Why do you think children have to go to Catechesis (religious education)?" - Ana Maria, age 10, from Brazil

"You go to catechism to get to know Jesus better! If you have a friend, you enjoy being with him and getting to know him better. You enjoy being with your friend, playing together and getting to know his family, his life, where he was born, and where he lives. This is a good thing. Religious education classes help you get to know your friend Jesus better and his great family, the Church."                 - Pope Francis, as a response to Ana Maria

It is an honor to work with you and your families while you grow in your faith together! We love working together to help our children embrace their faith! Please let us know how we can best support you and your children as they mature in their Catholic understanding!
