Immaculate Conception Religious Education Program

Our Religious Education program is intended for the religious formation of our parish children attending public schools in First through Eighth Grade. Our dedicated staff of professional teachers and catechists is devoted to helping the children of our parish become fully initiated into our community of Catholic faith. They also direct and organize the sacraments of First Reconciliation, First Communion, and Confirmation for both our catechetical program and our parish School. All of our programs are approved by the diocese and are aimed towards leading the children to fulfillment in God through Christ and Church. The mission of our Christ-centered catechetical program is to teach each child the richness of our Catholic faith tradition so that they not only learn what it means to be Catholic, but are also transformed through an experience of Jesus as their friend, shepherd and Savior. Through our Catholic school and Religious Education Program ministry, we can offer our children a thorough initiation into our Catholic way of life.
