All young people at St. Joe who do not attend school here should be sure to attend classes in our Religious Education Program. Classes are available for children from 3-year old preschool through 8th grade.
Classes are held Sundays starting on September 8. Classes meet in the school building from 11:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. Classes end at 12:00 p.m. with the Angelus.
It is the expectation of the church that all students attend Mass. It might be easiest for your son or daughter to attend the 10:00 a.m. Mass in English and then go to class. Alternatively, students might opt to attend class and then go to the 12:15 p.m. Mass in Spanish. You could go to another Mass, too, but those two might be the easiest and most convenient.
Parent sessions take place during the same time, in the cafeteria for Spanish and the school gym for English.
Registration starts in July and classes start after Labor Day and run through May.
First Communion classes are held during 2nd grade.
Parish policy states you must attend 1st grade REP classes before entering 2nd grade of sacramental preparation for First Communion.
Confirmation classes are held in 9th grade, but meet at a different time. Please see this page for Confirmation preparation information. Parish policy states you must attend REP classes consecutively before entering 9th grade of sacramental preparation.
