Saint Mary Magdalen Parish Religious Education is centered on the development of true spiritual values, and the encouragement

of the attitudes, understanding, and behaviors of a member of the Catholic community. Our goal is to

help your child to reach Jesus: to

know that he/she is especially

loved and valued by Christ.

Our catechetical programs begin

in Grade 1 and extends to Grade 7. Students who complete

this program of studies are thus prepared to complete initiation

into the Catholic faith through the sacrament of Confirmation.

Program Overview:


Levels 1 - 5 Students:

This year, In keeping with the archdiocesan directives for the unprecedented situation, PREP will

be presented completely online

for our 2020-2021 school year. The model will be the Family Catechesis program Parents and students will receive the first lesson online for each unit in the textbook, Finding God, for that month; parents will teach

the remaining lessons in the unit

at home.


In September, a safe delivery of materials to students is planned.

The first lesson of each unit will be

pre-recorded and the link will be provided to the families. In addition, lessons on the theme of the unit will be pre-recorded each month for the parents. 


Levels 6 -7 Students:

See above. Our Sixth and Seventh grade will have two lessons per month with a more detailed

summary of the information in

order to prepare them for the sacrament of Confirmation

(it is a two-year preparatory curriculum).

Our Mission

We are called by our Baptism to grow in hope and love and to respond to our challenge as Catholics to spread the Word of God. 

In answer to this call, our mission is to offer education and opportunities for spiritual growth of both the students and catechists of the program. The Religious Education Program of Saint Mary Magdalen Parish strives to assist parents in helping their children to develop a life-long relationship with Jesus through the 
teachings of beliefs, doctrine, tradition and service to others.
