Religious Education

Preschool - 6th Grade


Congratulations to the children who enrolled to receive Jesus in the Eucharist this year. We look forward to your preparation for receiving the greatest gift God gave us.  

Help us put the Word of God in our First Communicants' hands. Cost is $40 to sponsor one Bible and we have 17 that need sponsored. If you wish to sponsor a child, please mail or drop off a check with “Bible” written in the memo to St. Mary’s or Geneveve and Tracy will be available after all Masses the weekend of March 2 & 3. Thank you for prayerfully considering this lifelong gift to the children. Any additional money donated will go towards the First Communion Retreat.


If you haven’t paid your fee for this year, please do so as soon as you can! Thank you!
