Parish Religious Education Program
The Christian home is a place where children first learn about The Faith. The family home is “the domestic church,” a
community of grace and prayer, a school of human virtues and of Christian charity.

WHAT IS PREP?
This program assists the parents of our parish in their role as the primary teachers of the faith to their children. Guided by our parish pastor, comprehensive instruction in the Catholic faith is organized by the PREP Coordinator and delivered by volunteer catechists from the parish community. Sacramental preparation for First Reconciliation, First Holy Communion and Confirmation are incorporated in the program, which runs from Gr 1 to Gr 7. Through PREP, parents and families have the opportunity to renew their own faith foundation by studying with their children and through attendance at special sacrament meetings.
