Religious Education for Children at St. Anthony of Padua
St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Community offers students (1-8) not attending St. Anthony of Padua School several opportunities for religious education. With scripture lessons, stories, videos, songs and crafts, our dedicated staff help these students build on their Catholic beliefs from year to year and lead them on their journey of faith formation.
Our program also helps prepare these students to receive the Catholic Sacraments. Preparation for the Sacraments of Penance and Eucharist occurs in the 2nd grade. Preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation occurs in the 7th, 8th and 9th grades.
Religious Education classes are offered on Sundays from 10:15-11:15 a.m. for Grades 1-8.
St. Anthony of Padua also offers a Home Study program for those who need this accommodation.
