Parish Religious Education for Children (PREP)

St. Patrick's Parish
2881 Main Street
Vancouver, BC V5T 3G1

St. Patrick's Parish Religious Education Program (PREP)  provides catechism instruction to children attending public and independent non-Catholic schools. 

PREP aims to assist  parents in providing opportunities for their children to grow in their faith journey from Grades 1 to high school, and  prepare them to receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Eucharist in Grade 2, and Confirmation in Grade 7.

Classes are held on Wednesdays from 7:00 pm to 8:15 pm at Saint Patrick’s Elementary School, from September to June each year  ( except on public holidays and Holy Days of Obligation).

Grades 1 and 2 use the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS), a classroom instruction program based on Montessori methodology.

Each  PREP class is handled by well-trained catechists, who have undergone a criminal record check. 

For inquiries, please contact the PREP Coordinator at 604-874-7818 ext.  113 or at [email protected]
