Preschool - 8th Grade

Parents have a unique role in the religious formation of their child. The Church views this role of parents as both a privilege and a responsibility. By assisting parents/guardians to pass on the faith to the next generation we believe that we carry on the mission of the Church.


The program begins in September and ends in May. Religious education classes are offered Sunday morning, Monday afternoon and Wednesday afternoon. Students are expected to attend the weekly classes.

Families that cannot meet during regular class times may enroll in the Family of Faith Program. Parents teach their children at home at a time of their choosing. The families meet once a month with a catechist for lesson planning, review, and enrichment.

Sacramental Preparation

Preparation for the Sacraments is a two year process. Students must have regular class attendance. Parents are expected to participate in mandatory parent meetings, family catechesis, and parent child retreats.


Current and new students may begin registration in June for fall classes. Registration information will be available at that time. New students must furnish a copy of their baptismal certificate at the time of registration. All families enrolled in the program need to be registered at St. Patrick Catholic Community.

Fees and Payment for 2019/2020 school year

Fee for the year/per child: $80.00. Preparation for Sacraments will be an additional $20.00 in the second year. Payment is due at the time of registration. Payment plans are available.

Class size

Class size will be limited to 12-14 students. The earlier you register the more likely you will be able to register your children for the class of your first choice.
