Religious Education


RELIGIOUS EDUCATION program of St. Theresa’s reflects the catechetical ministry of the Church.  Children of catechetical age, preschool through eighth grade, share their faith weekly in small groups throughout the school year.  The program follows the guidelines for catechesis of the Archdiocese and the catechism of the Catholic Church.  St. Theresa’s program is a family-based program which offers opportunities for families to come together to pray during the year, as well as materials for use within the home.  Volunteer catechists are trained as teachers.  Over forty men and women offer their services each year for the four hundred plus children in the program.  There is a booklet explaining the faith education process for each grade level and the family/parish sacrament preparation program.
