Saint Anthony of Padua Religious Education Program

Our Religious Education program is designed to meet the needs of children who attend public school or who are home schooled, grades one through nine. Students will prepare for the Sacraments of Reconciliation, Holy Eucharist and Confirmation in the appropriate grade level. In grades where sacraments are not received, students continue to increase their knowledge of all aspects of faith including the Bible, Commandments, Beatitudes, plus additional studies.

Classes are held at the St. Anthony/Charter School classroom.

Our catechists (teachers) are volunteers from our parish who are willing to give of their time, energy and great witness to their faith for the spiritual growth of our students. Our catechists are Safe Environment trained through a program from the Fall River Diocese and have been background screened (CORI).

Classes are held on every Sunday for grades one through Confirmation.
Sunday program begins with Holy Mass at 8:30am, followed by catechism - 9:45am – 11:15am
