Elementary (Gr. 1–6)

Our Religious Education program is perfect for students in first through sixth grades who attend area public schools or are home-schooled. Through a variety of religious experience and teaching, we help students to understand what it means to live as Catholic Christian disciples. Classes meet on the first and third Sunday of each month from 12:30 to 2:00 p.m. unless otherwise specified. For second grade students, much of the preparation for First Communion and First Reconciliation occurs during these sessions.

Children’s Liturgy of the Word

Children in first through third grade receive a blessing from the presiding priest during the 9:30 and 11:15 a.m. Masses. They hear age-appropriate lessons that correspond with the readings and the Gospel while in the Chapel. We request that parents accompany their children to our Early Childhood Religious Education program for the entirety of Mass if they are three to six years old and not yet in the first grade.

Vacation Bible School

Imagine a world where curious kids ages four through entering 4th grade become hands-on inventors who discover God lovingly crafts them. Join us for Maker Fun Factory Vacation Bible School on June 12 through June 16 from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. The week will be filled with amazing experiments, creative games, incredible music, new friends, and much more.
