Our Religious Education program is now accepting new registrations for the 2019-2020 academic year. We provide a program that follows the growing trend of Family Catechesis. Be sure to review the schedule and philosophy of our program to know how it will impact your child and family schedules. Thank you for your interest in teaching your child about God’s love for them.
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!
