Religious Education - Hybrid Program

Welcome to St. Michael's Religious Education Program! We are so excited to offer faith formation classes for our St. Michael Parish community's public, charter, and home-school students, and we hope you will join us!!
We have received feedback from our families about needing more flexibility. Families have a lot going on, and weekday evenings can be difficult. With that feedback, our Religious Ed program will take a new help make our program hybrid—a blend of at-home learning with community meet-ups. 

We will implement a home school model for the 2023/2024 year. Parents are the most critical catechists in a child's life, and we are here to assist. Students will have lessons each week with work that they will turn in. We will also meet in person once a quarter on a Sunday at 10:00 a.m. Mass followed by refreshments and discussion. This will be a whole group activity. Students in grades 2nd and 8th making sacraments will have the opportunity to meet during this time to reflect and learn more about their sacraments.



Registration is closed 2023/24 school year.
