Elementary Religious Education
Our program is based on the New Catechism of the Catholic Church. The Catechism’s emphasis on creed, sacraments and moral life of the Christian as well as prayer, rooted in and supported by the Scriptures, is the emphasis and structure of this program.
We also have a program for Elementary children with Special Education Needs. Our goal is to make them feel welcome and learn more about their faith. Please inquire at registration or call the RE office at 512-258-1944 for more information.

First Communion and First Reconciliations
Children in 2nd grade prepare to receive the sacraments of Eucharist (First Communion) and Reconciliation. Children should be registered in Religious Education preferably 2 years (1st grade and 2nd grade) before receiving these sacraments.
There will be several mandatory parent meetings. More specific details will be provided once classes begin.
Older Student Sacrament Preparation Program (OSSP)
Does your child over the age of 7 (past 2nd grade) need to receive the sacraments of Baptism, Reconciliation or Eucharist? This program is designed for any student in grades 3-8 who has not received these sacraments. Children need to be registered in Religious Ed classes. Parents must attend a mandatory orientation meeting on Monday, October 15, at 6:30pm, in Brennan Auditorium, to go over the process. Please call Cynthia Jordan for more information (512-258-1944 x-222).
Are you having RE scheduling problems? We offer a Home Study program for grades 1, 3, 4 and 5 (Sacrament years are not an option for Home Study). This would be a great way to spend quality time with your child while teaching them Religious Education. Pick up materials on Tuesday, October 2 or Thursday, October 4, at 7:00pm in Brennan Auditorium. There is a $20 fee for materials.
For more information on any of our programs please contact our Elementary School Coordinator, at 512-258-1944 x221.
