Religious Education

Purpose

The mission of St. Anne's Religious Education, first through the eighth grade, is to foster and nurture the children's faith within our Catholic Christian tradition.  Our teaching emphasizes the presence of Jesus in our lives and His love for each one of us. 

 

We offer sacramental preparation for children who

  • have not been baptized,

  • have not received Reconciliation and their first communion.

 

When can my child receive the sacraments?

Children may receive first reconciliation and first communion in 3rd grade or later, after a minimum of 2 years of instruction.  This means students who begin classes in 1st grade will attend classes for 3 years; students who begin classes in grades 2-7 will attend classes for 2 years.

All classes take place at Saint Anne's School from September through May.
