Religious Education

St. Jude Elementary School

A complete Catholic education program is contained in the curriculum at the school, and taught on a daily basis. It is an objective of the school to “provide for the child’s spiritual growth by affording prayer opportunities, participation in the liturgy, the reception of the sacraments and an understanding of Catholic doctrine.”

Parish School of Religion (PSR)

This program provides religious education for students in grades 1-8 who do not attend a parochial school full-time. Classes are held on Sunday mornings starting at 9:30-10:45 a.m., beginning the Sunday after Labor Day and ending in May. PSR teaching opportunities and classroom assistants are available.

Religious Education for Learning/Physically Impaired Persons and Teens

Religious education is available for a variety of learning or developmentally impaired children during regular PSR classes on Sunday mornings. Teens and some children needing accessible buildings are going to neighboring parishes for religious education. Arrangements and referrals for all of the above are provided on an individual basis. Please contact our DRE.

If you or someone you know, of high-school age or older, is already a Baptized Catholic but has not received one or more sacraments, we would be happy to help you/them prepare and receive “first” Eucharist, Reconciliation or Confirmation. Please call the Director of Religious Education.
