“The Christian home is the place where the children receive the first proclamation of the faith. For this reason the family is rightly called ‘the domestic church’, a community of grace and prayer, a school of human virtues and of Christian charity” (CCC, no. 1666)

What we offer at St. Joseph…

St. Joseph offers a comprehensive religious education for students in grades K – 9. 10th grade students who have completed at least two prior years of classes, one being the 9th grade pre-confirmation classes on the Nicene Creed, attend six to eight monthly 3-hour sessions in preparation for receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation. For students who are behind in their sacraments or have missed more than one year of RE, we offer Family Catechesis classes designed for the student and parent(s).

The Spring 2021 Calendar is currently under construction.
