Our mission in religious education is to support the growth of a child’s loving relationship with God and with the community of believers. Our religious education program for children, REACH (Religious Education and Christian Heritage) is a program of class time (online or in person), Sunday Mass, and safe community service opportunities.
The formation of children as Catholic Christians begins in the home with parents. It continues with worship at Mass with the larger community and culminates in classes where children reflect on and learn the stories and teachings of Catholic Christianity. All three are essential.
The many volunteers who give their time and talents make the St. Jerome REACH program a success and without whom there would be no program. Catechists receive free tuition for their children enrolled in the REACH program
