Catholic Education [general info. for other years]
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.
In addition, we are also planning a Christian performing arts youth group where older kids can act, sing, dance, and play instruments. Jacinta Gorringe will direct this program at various parishes, including ours, so that several times and locations will be offered.
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 director at the contact information to the right, or contact your child's teacher.
