Religious Education for Children Age 3 to 5
Our Preschool Religion Program takes place each Sunday morning in the school during the parish’s 9:30 a.m. Mass. It is open to children ages three, four, five and those presently in Kindergarten. Children must have reached the age of 3, 4 or 5 by September 30th. The “Sharing God’s Story” curriculum for the three and four year olds is Scripture-based. The Five Year Old class uses the “Call to Faith” curriculum published by Harcourt Religion. It covers celebrations of the Church year, Catholic prayers and age-appropriate foundational Religion lessons for kindergarteners. Registration packets may be picked up in the parish office.
