At the baptism of our children we promise to educate them in the tenets of our faith. Here at the Basilica of Sts. Peter and Paul we take that promise very seriously. The goal of catechesis is to foster a living, conscious and active faith in Christians of all ages. RE classes are held August through May starting at age 3 through 12th grade. Classes are held on Sundays from 10:15 - 11:15.
We do not charge for our classes, however, with that in mind we do ask for help from the parents. We need help in the form of providing snacks or funds in which to purchase snacks, and occasionally helping in the kitchen.
Any child in 6th grade or higher is eligible for Confirmation this year.
Without your volunteering, our young people will not be taught the faith. We currently need at least three more teachers for this year’s program, which begins on September 10. If the Lord is tapping you on the shoulder, call the parish office or email Danielle Stradley using the Contact button below.
