Our vocation as Catholic parents is to help our children get to heaven. Our parish is here to help you!
Religious education at Saint Eleanor will focus on faith formation for your whole family. The goal is for our children to learn about our great faith AND to make our homes places where we love and honor God, pray together, serve others, read the Bible and support each other in our joys and sufferings. Life is challenging and many of us carry heavy burdens. Our parish is here to support and strengthen you in your vocation to raise your children in the faith.
We will offer two programs for religious instruction which are detailed below. Both programs involve home-based instruction as well as opportunities to come together – virtually and/or in person – for lessons and parish devotions.
