Fall Registration update:
Keep checking this site!! Registrations will open in mid-August.
We are working hard on establishing our plans for the fall. Our priority is maintaining the safety and well-being of our children, families and our Catechists, while at the same time providing the high quality Religious Education content you are accustomed to. We will send out emails as more information becomes available, and post updates here.

Our Lenten Project: Divine Renovation Garden
This is our completed Garden! The Seeds at the bottom are people we are praying for. The Stems are active things we can do to help others. The Leaves are things we have given up during Lent. The petals on the flowers are children's comments about what has been the "best thing about being stuck at home" during the quarantine.
1. Be My Disciples, the curriculum for most of our classes, has some great resources on their website (click here!) for parents and students. There are some activities, including chapter reviews, that are directly linked to the content we would have been covering in class. For most students, the chapters they'll miss are chapters 21-23 or 24. Maybe take a look at it during the time your child would have been in class!
2. RCL Benziger, the publisher of our curriculum, has offered a resource for families to use at home. Here is their message:
"RCL Benziger is committed to supporting parish and school families during this unprecedented time of the COVID-19 pandemic. With so many struggling to find ways to share our faith, we are seeking ways to support the Church in helping you meet the needs of your faith formation programs. RCL Benziger is proud to introduce a new series for families, Sunday Celebrations. We will provide a Sunday Celebrations session for each Sunday over the next 8 weeks.
Welcome to Sunday Celebrations, a free resource from RCL Benziger to help you celebrate Sunday with your family, in your home. Each Sunday’s celebration focuses on the Gospel of the day, and encourages family members of all ages to join in singing, praying, sharing, and celebrating. Suggested songs and craft activities help enliven and extend the celebrations throughout the week."
Each Sunday Celebration is available in English and in Spanish!

Holy Apostles PREP (Parish Religious Education Program) strives to be a joyful place where children can form relationships, learn that God loves them, grow closer in relationship with Jesus and begin an understanding of the Catholic faith.
Each year classes begin in September but we can add children to the program all year long. It's never "too late" to make disciples! We're here to serve you and your family.
We look forward to meeting you,
