Special Classes:  Is this your first time in Religious Education, and you are in 2nd grade or older?  We offer some special catch up and sacramental preparation classes.  Please call the office at 371-1478 to set up classes.

Parent Involvement:  Holy Spirit Religious Education does require that parents volunteer in our program.  This allows you to actively participate in your child’s religious education, and keep costs down.  Registration will not be processed without parent involvement. Volunteering as a catechist, is a wonderful way to share your time and talents.  It is also a great witness to the importance of growing in the faith. We offer training for our teachers, and there is the option to team teach.
