The Religious Education of Children

For parents to effectively promote and share their Catholic Christian faith with their children, three things are necessary.

Mass Attendance

Go to Mass as a family each week, and get involved in parish events and activities. Remember to pray at home each day as well.

Religion Classes

Attend all eight years of religion classes as part of the regular parish faith formation and sacramental preparation program for children.

Home Study

Enhance or supplement your parish’s religion classes with online lessons.  Please click here for information about a home study program.

Even after Confirmation, there are many in-person and online resources for continuing religious education and spiritual growth.
