Sunday Catechist Lead Traditional Instruction Grades 1-7


Registration for the 2021-2022 Religious Education year will begin SOON.

St. Joseph PREP is a religious education program option for all parish children in Grades 1 through 7 that do not attend a Catholic Elementary school.

The Sunday Religious Education program will be an at home study utilizing Pflaum Gospel Weeklies. The content of the program flows from the Sunday Gospel and children learn their faith within the rhythms of the liturgical year – Advent, Christmas, Lent, Easter and Ordinary Time. The Sunday liturgy is the heart of the parish community. With this program, all students and their families hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  Your whole family can easily share in the learning because all children are studying lessons based on the same Gospel proclaimed in church on Sunday. You can gather all your children at one time to share what they have learned and to talk about it as a family.

Resources for families include The Gospel at Home, which is a weekly summary of the Sunday Gospel and suggestions for you to use at home.  These are all at the Pflaum Gospel Weeklies website.  See quick links below.

Catechists will assist the parents in presenting the lessons as well as providing any additional enrichment lessons.  Assessments will be completed on-line and emailed directly to the Catechist.
