Religious Education

Next to the celebration of the Mass and the sacraments, the single most important responsibility we have as a parish is to provide opportunities for parishioners of all ages to deepen their understanding of the Catholic faith. Here at Holy Apostles, we take very seriously our responsibility to offer the very best School of Religion possible.

Classes begin:  the week of September 24 for Grades 1-5 and the week of October 1 for Grades 6-8

CONFIRMATION:  At Holy Apostles we offer a two year program of preparation referred to as Confirmation I and Confirmation II.  Generally this corresponds to the first two years of High School.  Successful  completion of the primary and middle school grades in our School of  Religion is a prerequisite to enter the Confirmation Program.  Mrs. Peggy Simms is the coordinator of our Confirmation Program for teens, who typically are Confirmed in the Spring of their 10th Grade.  Any adult who wishes to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation should contact the Parish Office for more information.
