Welcome!

Our mission is to support our families as they guide their children in the Catholic faith.

We have many volunteers who make this program possible. It is our hope that we might guide children and youth to understand how God is present in our everyday lives.

Parish families are invited and encouraged to enroll their children. All parents whose children attend public school should enroll their children in our Parish Religious Education Program (PREP).

REGISTRATION IS OPEN for the 2019/20 year!

2019/2020 Forms:

Elementary Religious Education

Classes are offered for Kindergarten through 6th grade during the school year on Wednesday evenings from 6:00 p.m. to 7:15 p.m.

Confirmation Classes

Our Confirmation program is a two (2) year program. Confirmation formation occurs during the Seventh and Eighth grade year. Students attend classes Sundays from 9:30 AM to 10:45 AM during the school year.

In August 2016, we changed our Confirmation program. Both the 7th & 8th grade St. Laurence School students and PREP students began attending Confirmation classes together on Sunday mornings.

We believe this has helped cultivate a stronger community between the school and church, as well as, increase service hour opportunities and increase opportunities to participate in liturgy.
