The ministries of the Parish School of Religion support the Pastor and Catechetical leaders in the spiritual development of the youth of our parish family. It is important for all Catholics to grow in the knowledge of their faith and in their love of Christ and His Church. This can be accomplished with the extended help and support of all members of our parish family. Classes meet on Sunday evenings from 6:00 – 7:30 PM. An online Faith at Home option is available as an alternative.

To register, visit Parish School of Religion Registrations.
