Religious Education Kindergarten- 12th grade















Parish School of Religion at St. Anthony of Padua strives to assist parents in leading their children to become disciples of Jesus Christ in the twenty-first century. Our goal is to foster a mature faith in our students and families- a faith that is living and a relationship with God that is everlasting. St. Anthony of Padua offers classes for first grade through 12th grade students. Our religious education program prepares students for the sacraments of First Communion, Reconciliation, or Confirmation. Returning families which have children older than 10 years old may enroll their children in RCIA classes adapted for children to receive the sacrament of Baptism, First Communion, Reconciliation, and Confirmation. RCIA classes adapted for children are also a two year program.  More than 558 students attend classes once a week for two consecutive years to prepare for each sacrament.
