Children’s Religious Education and 1st Communion


Religious Education Classes – Preschool through 5th Grade

Sunday Mornings –  9:50am – 11.15am (Classes are held at Sacred Heart School)

Classes – Commence September 18th, 2016 — April 30th, 2017

We at Sacred Heart believe that our Religious Education Program is a continuing journey of faith.  It is one that begins in the home and is reinforced by our weekly classes. Parents are the primary educators of their children when it comes to raising them in the Catholic faith, but the parish provides a strong, steady reinforcement to that which is so important to the parents in teaching their children, and more importantly, in helping their children to live out their faith. One of our main objectives is to teach the students the basic principles of the Catholic faith; however giving meaning to the rituals and symbols of our faith is not enough.  It is up to you, as parents, to provide a daily commitment to God by practicing the gift of faith and setting an example for your children.  Our efforts will not be effective unless they are combined with your efforts.

All children of the Parish, whether attending Catholic or Public schools, are invited to attend our religious education classes and experiences.


The preparation for the sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Eucharist is an active event in the lives of our parish children and their families. The actions of belonging, gathering, listening, celebrating, giving and going forth are stressed in the context of the Mass throughout the preparation year. It is a participatory process and we offer required sessions for parents to enable them to fully support their children throughout this time.
