PREP

(Parish Religious Education Program)

The Parish Religious Education Program (P.R.E.P.) provides religious education to children of the parish in grades 1 and up. 

 

We at Saint Eleanor Parish strive to foster a relationship with Jesus Christ and teach children to learn to live as His disciple as a member of the Catholic Church.

The program offers an educational opportunity as well as experiences of community, service and worship.

 

For more information, email Teri Lahey at tlahey@steleanor.com

The PREP program consists of three main components:

      Level 1 is for children entering their first year of religious education.

      Level 2 is for children who completed Level 1 and are preparing for First Penance & First Eucharist.

      Levels 3-6 is for children who have completed each prior level.

      Level 7 and up is for youth who have completed all prior levels and are preparing for the Sacrament of Confirmation.

The Traditional 30 week program will not be held  this year. In it's place, we are offering a one week Take the Plunge summer program and a Family Option. Religious Education for Levels 1 - 6 is offered at the following times:
