Religious Education

              The goal of our religious education at Holy Name is to:


               1. Teach students what a Catholic is to believe so they can come to know, serve and love the Lord in this life so they can be happy with him in eternal life.

               2. To involve students in the life of the parish, ie worship, service and community.

               3.  To assist parents imparting the CATHOLIC FAITH to their children, so that it will be a living life of giving Faith.

               4.  To encourage parents to continue their own religious develpment by attending adult religious education classes. Watch the bulletin or check the web site for date and times these classes

                                       are offered at  Holy Name.



                  Religious Education classes are on Wednesday nights from 6:30pm to 7:45pm, for Kindergarten through 6th grade, in the Parish Hall


             Religion Education classes are on Sunday mornings from 9:00am - 10:15am  for 7th and 8th grades, in the Parish Hall



                  If a child goes to public school and parents want to instruct them in the Catechism at home, please contact Religious Coordinator to you information on Online classes which will be monitored


                                                through the Religious Education office.
