PREP: Pre School Religious Education


PREP is designed to give preschool children (ages 3 to 5 years) an introduction to basic Catholic Christian principles.

Classes meet on Sunday morning from 9:30 to 10:30 am during the regular school year, beginning in September and continuing through April. Class sessions include a gathering time for children to get to know each other, before the lesson of the week is presented.

The lesson is taught with age appropriate activities, crafts, and catechist led discussions. Parental involvement is key to the success of this program.
