We welcome all families back to Religious Education! Classes began on September 12 this year.
We start this year with a special prayer, or challenge, posed by Mother Teresa~~you'll find it on the back of the calendar your children will bring home this month. It's called "Do It Anyway." Please be sure to ask your children at the beginning of every month for their calendar so that you are aware of special requirements and class schedules.
