Religious Education

Religious Education Program:
PARE: Vicki Schwering 812-663-4754

All our classes for grades Kindergarten through the 12th grade are held on Wednesday evenings during the school year.  These classes are held at our St. Maurice site from 6:45 pm to 8:00 pm.

Religious Education Classes are taught by volunteer Catechists, and they are encouraged to be certified through the program offered by our Archdiocese.
Preschool lessons are the 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month during the school year.  Lessons are held during the 8am Mass and the 10am Mass.  Preschool children can attend at either site on those Sundays.

Our curriculum includes training for First Holy Communion, Reconciliation, and Confirmation.  We also have an All Saints Celebration and a Christmas Celebration.  We recognize our high school seniors at the end of the school year at our Outdoor Mass.

We offer Vacation Bible School for all of our children and their friends in grades Pre-school through 5th grade during one week in the summer.
