Religious Education

REGISTRATION IS ONGOING.  Newcomers and latecomers always welcome!  REGISTER HERE

Classes are usually from late September to mid-May on most Sundays.  For the 2020-2021 school year, because of the pandemic, classes for grades K to 8 are held remotely on Zoom starting at 9:45 a.m. and end by 10:15 a.m. to give families time to get ready to join the 11 a.m. Mass online or in person; and thus put our faith into action through participation in the weekly celebration of the Eucharist. 

Confirmation classes for grades 9 and 10 are a hybrid of in-person and remote on Zoom.  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 online classes, there will be an optional gathering for families, following social distancing and all safe practices, once a month in the church.  Please use the link above to register your child or stop by the rectory to complete your registration process.  

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 5 is Spirit and Truth published by Sophia Institute and is rooted in engaging and immersing students in the Catholic Faith. For middle school ministry, this year we will be implementing the Edge program by Life Teen. 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.
