Religious Education is offered in three (3) faith based programs for members of Mary, Mother of the Church Parish: MONTHLY, WEEKLY, AND HOME STUDY. You must be a registered member of Mary, Mother of the Church Parish.  Please fill out the registration form in the Parish Office or submit online

Monthly classes – As of the Fall 2018, we are now offering families the option to attend our Monthly Program in St. Mary’s School.  Classes will be on the first Monday of each month, with a few changes as necessary.  Monthly classes are only available to children in non-sacramental year programs which are those children in 3rd – 6th grade.  While your children are attending their class, one parent will be expected to stay and receive support to guide their child in off week lessons.  Monthly classes are for 1 hour and 30 minutes.  Classes are held September to April.

Weekly classes – As of the Fall 2018, our weekly classes are held either on Tuesday nights in Holy Assumption Church (Session B) or Sunday’s in St. Mary’s School (Sessions C and D).  Your choice of a class commits your child to that day and time for the remainder of the year.  Our weekly classes are open to our 1st – 8th graders.  Weekly classes are for 1 hour 15 minutes.  Classes are held September to April.

Home Study – Available to those families that are Active Catholics, where travel makes it to difficult to attend class and extreme situations.  Students in 2nd, 7th and 8th grades may not enroll in this program.  Please be advised that Home Study families will have a mandatory parent kick off meeting in the Fall, the children will take individual chapter and four unit tests throughout the year, be expected to attend additional parish activities, and have a final oral interview in the late Spring.  Home Study runs from September to April.

Please note all class assignments are on a first come, first serve basis and no child is automatically assigned to the time they had the previous year.  Registering after August 31st may delay your child from starting on time.
