St. John the Evangelist Religious Education Program Information
We provide religious education for children in grades 1-11. Also included are parent sessions once a month. The program runs from September through March.
2nd Grade is First Communion and 11th Grade is Confirmation. Students who've missed these years can still receive the sacraments. Please speak to the pastor to arrange this.
Children in Catholic School do need to register and attend classes in the parish during the two sacramental years. It is a great thing if you send your child to Catholic school, but that is only for their childhood. The Church Parish is a place for faith and community that lasts a lifetime. All of our most important sacraments take place in the Church and with the parish community. Requiring your child to attend parish classes helps them to be more connected to this community and to see that their faith is not just something they do at school, but is something they live out in communion with others and throughout their whole lives.
*Under ordinary circumstances, failure to attend enough of these classes can lead to a delay in receiving the sacrament. Please contact the office to speak with the Pastor for any special circumstances.
Most classes meet on Sunday Mornings after the 10:00 AM Mass. Confirmation classes are before the Mass, 8:50-9:50
These classes are held in the parish hall and offices.
