Religious Education (First grade through end of High School)

Formation in the Catholic faith of our children and youth is an important and necessary task assigned to parents and the parish community. To this end, The Church of the Annunciation offers Religious Education to children and youth Sunday mornings between early September and May.

Parents preferring to home school their children in the faith at home are encouraged to utilize the same texts used at the parish. Please contact RE.

Texts -

Elementary and Middle School (1st-8th)

Faith and Life series from Ignatius press.

The New St. Joseph Baltimore Catechism, No.1 and No.2.

 

High School (9th – 12th

Didache Series from the Midwest Theological Freedom

Tuition – To be determined

COVID-19 accommodations: To be determined. It is likely we will need to ask parents to homeschool their children in the faith during the first several months.
