The Elementary Religious Education program, known as ERE,  is a parish and family-based religious education program, geared to help young people in grades 1-5 come to know Jesus Christ and begin to form a life-long relationship with Him. Through the sharing of personal faith stories, personal witness, the use of Church-approved catechetical materials, family involvement in sacramental preparation, craft activities, study of the traditions of the Church, and praise of God through prayer, song and Liturgy, our parish youngsters receive a solid foundation in their faith development.
