Religious Education

Religious Education Classes

Children in grades 1-8, not enrolled in our parish grade school, attend Religious Education classes held on Monday (REfuel for 7th & 8th Grade), Wednesday evenings (traditional RE for Grades 1 - 6) and Sunday afternoons (traditional RE for Grades 1 - 8).  Classes meet September - May during the school year.  Each family may choose the day they prefer.  In addition to catechetical instruction, the program offers children opportunities for prayer including Stations of the Cross, the Sacrament of Reconciliation, Eucharistic Adoration, the Rosary, Jesse Tree, Seder Supper, and May Crowning.  Parents or Guardians are always welcome to attend these prayer services.  In the classroom, the children are instructed in the faith by volunteer catechists from our parish.  Please contact Debbie Blackburn at debbieblackburn@saintv.org if you have any questions.

REfuel Program

REfuel is a new way of preparing our 7th and 8th grade RE students for Confirmation.  REfuel aims to increase familiarity with the Holy Spirit, awaken a sense of belonging to the Church and parish, help students to recognize Christ in the sacraments, and empower them to become disciples.

This program will include new learning nights called REfuel nights and will also encompass our established parish Edge youth nights. At REfuel nights our students will be taught by experienced theology teachers and priests with a passion for the Catholic Faith and our youth. The Edge and REfuel nights will be on Monday evenings throughout the school year from 7:30-9:00 PM. However, a full meal will be served beginning at 7 PM. Please see the pamphlet to the right for additional information.

The REfuel program on Monday will replace traditional RE on Wednesday evening for our 7th & 8th Grade students.  Traditional Religious Ed for 7th & 8th Grade students is offered on Sunday from 4:00 to 5:30 PM.

Pre-School Program

This program is designed for children ages 3 and 4 and those in kindergarten.  Classes are offered during the 9:00 am Mass September through April.  Workbooks and materials written and published specifically for preschool children are used and the instructors of the program are volunteers.

Catholic Kidz Camp (formerly Vacation Bible School)

Offered one week in early June for children ages 4 to grade 5, Catholic Kidz Camp is a popular summer time event for which volunteers assist the children in learning about the Faith, making crafts, singing, playing games, and enjoying snacks!
