The Archdiocese of Indianapolis recommends that students who are not in Catholic schools receive a minimum of 30 hours of classroom Religious Education.  If your child attends all of these classes, that requirement will be satisfied.  The class times are 9:30(after 8:30 Mass)-10:50 on Sunday mornings.  Please have your child arrive on time. Our catechists are very devoted to teaching our faith well-all voluntarily.  We use textbooks that are in conformity with the US Conference of Catholic Bishops.  Please try making every attempt to have your child attend all of the classes.  This calendar was planned to correlate with area school breaks.
