General Information

The Religious Education program is meant to supplement the Religious formation already happening in the home.  Parents are the first and foremost educators of their children. 
St. Patrick Church will assist parents in teaching their children by providing a safe environment to learn and share their faith.
It is expected that any child that does not attend a Catholic private school should attend a Religious Ed program. Every year is an important stepping stone in a child’s Faith Journey, not just the sacramental years.


In-Person and Online Options available.
