Religious Education

First Communion

(May 7, 2017)

Classes in Religious Education are held on Sunday mornings from 9:45 to 10:45 during the regular school year.
  The cost for religious education is $10 per child.  Maximum cost per family is $25.

This fee helps cover the cost of the workbooks and supplies.

We have built the religious education calendar around the White County School Calendar.  The schedule below lists the dates for religious education classes and events at church that focus on the children of our parish. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please call Molli Hennessey at (931) 510-5483.

Educating our youth for the future!
