Elementary Religious Education - St Thomas

K-4th Grade Religious Education Program


Course /Church Attendance

A key part of faith formation is attendance. Our instructional time with students is very limited therefore it's imperative that Parents and Guardians play a significant role in developing our student's religious education. This formation can be fostered by parents when they review religion class activities with their children. In addition, adult participation in Holy Days of Obligation, Reconciliation, youth service activities, fund-raising events and weekly Masses help to model for our children and other students our faith in action.

Our Curriculum

It is important that along with participating in our faith community through Mass and attending Religious Education classes, that parents also work with their children at home to reinforce the concepts taught at Mass in classes. The following document houses all of the curricula for our K-8 curriculum. The curriculum includes the major focus points and prayers taught at each of the aforementioned grade levels. Take some time to learn the curricula and reinforce these elements of our faith at home with your children. Click here to open our PreK-8th Grade Curriculum.

Safety During Drop off/Pick up

    1. Please, do not drive through the carport. We do not want to risk having a child run out in front of you.
    2. Please, remember come into the Church to pick up your children. 

"But Jesus said, " Let the children alone, and do not hinder them from coming to Me; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.""

Matthew 19:14
