Our Religious Education program is nearing its end for 2018-19. We will open up registration for 2019-20 in May. The program will be similar to the information provide on this page. Please peruse our webpage for information on how our program is structured.
About the Program
Looking for a way to teach your children about the faith? We have something for you!
Saint Andrew Religious Education (RE) will offer a family program for families with children from Kindergarten through High School utilizing the Family Catechesis Model. This model has been adopted to the needs of Saint Andrew families after two years of working with families and publishers to have the most flexible and dynamic program we can offer.
Not only does this model offer flexibility to kids and families who may have vacations, sports, grandparents to visit, etc. It has also been proven as a way of having families grow together in religious literacy and faith.
Classes will meet on Sunday mornings from 8:45 am to 9:50 am.
Were excited to offer this program at our parish because of its proven approachability and adaptability for families. We hope you’ll join us in this journey!
