Often called “CCD”, our PREP Program seeks to provide a Catholic Education to

all children in our Parish who do not attend Catholic School. 


Our classes are on Sunday Mornings from 10:00 AM - 11:15 AM in St. Francis of

Assisi School. Our first day of classes will be on Sunday, September 17, 2023.


One Child $125.00; Two Children $225.00; Three Children $300.00. 

There is also a $30.00 Fee for First Holy Communion, and a $50.00 Fee for Confirmation. 

A copy of your child’s Baptism Certificate is REQUIRED at the time of Registration. 

If your child is entering HIGH SCHOOL beginning September 2023, they will need to be 

registered in our RCIA classes instead of PREP. For more information on RCIA, click here.

Registration is now closed. We will NOT accept late registrations. NO EXCEPTIONS.

Lauren Kibler, Religious Education Moderator, contact:


It is important to keep in contact with the parish in regard to your child’s religious education. Your pastor, Fr. Smith, has requested that all children who are home-schooled receive a midterm and year-end test to monitor their progress. Home-schooled children who are preparing for a sacrament during the year, must not only be tested but must also participate in the Parish Retreat and all events expected from any child receiving a sacrament. Please contact Fr. Smith in the Rectory for more information. Registration for homeschooling may follow the registration period for traditional catechesis.

PLEASE NOTE: Annual Safe Environment instructions are now called KidTalk. Below are the lessons for each grade level. Please download the correct level for your child and work through the lesson with them.

Level 1 | Level 2 |Level 3|Level 4|Level 5 |
Level 6 | Level 7 | Level 8 | Feeling Cards
