The purpose of the St. Veronica Religious Education Program is to support and enhance the religious formation of children that takes place in the family. Three programs/levels are available:
Toddlers and Babies (ages 0 - 3) - Nursery
Young children (ages three through five) are instructed during the 9:30 am Mass on Sunday mornings in the Preschool and Kindergarten programs.
Children in the public schools (grades one through eight) are provided religious formation on Wednesday evenings for Grade 1-8
Children in Grade 3 and above who are receiving their first sacraments (Baptism, Confirmation, First Communion) at a delayed time are formed through the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (for Children -- called RCIA or RCIC) process on Sunday mornings.
RCIA for Children -
(October – Easter Season Sundays 10:30 am to Noon)
Designed for students older than second grade level who are preparing for the sacraments of Baptism and/or First Reconciliation and First Eucharist. This process is patterned on the model of the RCIA for adults. Student attends both daytime or Tuesday evening religion classes and Sacramental Preparation classes. Requires parent and sponsor involvement. Contact the Faith Formation Office. Click here for more information about RCIA for Children (or Adults)
All of our REP programs rest and depend upon generous volunteer parishioners who dedicate their time and interest to growth in their own faith life, and who willingly share it with the children and youth of our parish.
