Forming young people in the Faith is one of the most important tasks entrusted to our parish. Our parish Religious Education team partners with the families of our parish to assist them in fulfilling their vocation to evangelize their children.

Classes will start on Sunday, August 14th from 8:45-10:15am. Like everything, if something comes up from the Diocese or the Health Department from Elkhart we will let you know.

REGISTRATION

Before registering your child for religious education classes, please review the religious education handbook. As explained above, you are the primary protagonist of your child's religious formation. We are here to assist you in this role, but you must take the lead. Our handbook outlines the responsibilities you must be ready to take on to fulfill this vital role, which is critical to your fulfillment of your vocation as a parent:
