Our parish offers a vibrant religious education program for students from Kindergarten through Confirmation. Regular classes are held 2-3 times each month in the St. Philip's parish hall on Sunday mornings from 9:45 - 11:00 a.m. followed by 11:15 mass throughout our CCD school year.
With recent changes to the recommended confirmation age, we are starting a 2-year confirmation program for children as young as 10 so they can be prepared for confirmation by 12 or 13.
The religious education program is run by volunteers, and parent involvement is greatly appreciated. Anyone wishing to aid in the classroom, provide snacks for the children, or help organize larger events (such as the Christmas play, May procession, summer day on the river), please contact the office, or contact your child's teacher. Note: Children from other parishes are welcome to join our program
