Saint Mary Magdalen Parish Religious Education Program (PREP) centers on developing deep 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 they are especially loved and valued by Christ.

Our catechetical programs begin in Grade 1 and extend to Grade 7. Students who complete this studies program are prepared to meet the initiation into the Catholic faith through the Sacrament of Confirmation. Families must be registered at St. Mary Magdalen to attend.
