Elementary Religious Education Grades 1-5

The Children’s Religious Education program exists to provide sacramental preparation for First Reconciliation, First Eucharist, and Confirmation as well as ongoing faith formation for children of St. Jude ages 6-18 who have received these sacraments.  In support of parents who are the first teachers of their children, the program strives to communicate the person and message of Jesus Christ in the context of the beliefs and practices of the Roman Catholic Church. The program presents the four pillars of the Catechism of the Catholic Church – Faith, Sacraments, Morality, and Prayer – in such a way that the children of our parish begin to understand how these pillars apply to their livesand how they can best LIVE their faith every day.
