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.
