Welcome to St. Joseph's Religious Education Program!

Catholic formation for children comes from many sources within the parish life including Sunday Mass, prayer and living a Catholic way of life in the home.  In addition, our parish Religious Education (RE) Program specifically serves our public school or home school children with both grade-level Religion Classes and Sacramental Preparation for grades Kindergarten through 8th grades.

Our formation program uses the Faith and Life Series by Ignatius Press.  This series is designed specifically with the parish formation program in mind.  The faith and life series is a systematic approach covering foundational truths of our Catholic faith as presented in the Catechism of the Catholic Church.  Using discussion and other pedagogical techniques, lessons engage students' minds, emotions, imagination, and creativity in a manner that leads students to become disciples of Christ

Registration for the 2019 - 2020  year is now open!
