2021-2022 year: We are returning to in-person classes and will follow the safety protocols of our parish school: Masks are required and social distancing of 3 feet will be observed. Classes start on September 26.
Grades K to 8: Classes are held on Sunday mornings from 9:45 to 10:45 ending in time for families and teachers to attend the 11 a.m. Mass if they wish; thus putting our faith into action through participation in the weekly celebration of the Eucharist.
Grades 9 to 10 Confirmation Classes: Confirmation I (grade 9) and Confirmation II (grade 10) classes meet on alternating weeks most Sundays from 4:30 p.m. to 5:15 p.m. followed by the 5:30 Mass.
Besides classes, there will also be opportunities for families to grow in faith together throughout the year at family formation potlucks.

The St. Mary of the Assumption Parish Religious Education Program is an essential part of the mission of the parish. The parish supports the children's parents who are the primary teachers of the faith. The goal of the program is to form the students to be disciples of Jesus Christ, capable of living life with Catholic-Christian values.
The program used from our kindergarten to grade 8 is Spirit of Truth published by Sophia Institute and is rooted in engaging and immersing students in the Catholic Faith. We look to help parents establish the foundation learning and understanding of the doctrines of our Catholic faith and support the children to grow in wisdom and understanding as dictated by their age and learning abilities.
