2024-2025 Religious Education Registration Opens June 16th!

St. Katharine Drexel Mission offers faith formation classes for children in grades 1-Confirmation through our Religious Education Program. As parents, you are the primary teachers of passing the Catholic faith to your children.  Our program serves to supplement those teachings using the Diocesan curriculum and supplemental materials.

Religious Education Class Information

Our classes for the 2024-2025 school year will run from September 8, 2024 through May 4, 2025 on Sunday mornings from 9:05 am – 10:20 am (new time).  Our location will be determined soon. Through the program, children will learn what it means to be a faith-filled Catholic and how they can apply these values to their everyday lives.

We offer a two-year Sacramental preparation program for those who wish to receive First Penance and First Holy Communion or Confirmation. The program helps children know and understand more deeply God’s immense love for each of us.
