New this year, Family Catechesis classes for 1st – 8th grade, meaning the whole family attends. Families will be required to attend 4 out of the 7 Family Catechesis classes (listed below), so three of those weekends your family will not have to attend PREP and have “off!” These classes will run from 10AM to approximately 12PM. Families will sign up ahead of time.
On Sundays that are designated Family Catechesis, parents of 1st – 8th graders should not send their child/children in alone, as regular PREP classes will not be held for those grades.
