Grades 1-5 Religious Ed

Grades 1-5 Religious Education

Our Religious Education program, for students in grades 1-5, is designed to strengthen the partnership between parents as the primary educators of their children and our entire parish community as supporting educators.

Our Mission is to develop a deeper understanding of our Catholic faith in your growing child. At St. Maria Goretti, we want each child to know that they are valued members of our parish community.

We recognize that children learn in different ways and we strive to incorporate a variety of teaching methods to meet those needs. We also recognize that this can be a very long day for most of the students, so creative and thoughtful lesson planning is done. We use the Be Our Disciples textbook by RCL Benzinger. Every year, children review previously taught concepts to reinforce their faith and learn new concepts to grow in their faith.

Our Elementary sessions are held October through April on Mondays from 4-5:15 p.m. or 6-7:15 p.m. Please see our calendar for dates.
