Religious Education


Mission Statement

As part of St. Anthony of Padua’s community of faith, our Religious Education program strives to provide and nurture the religious formation of grade school children who are entrusted to our care. Our catechists join together with parents to help their children practice their Catholic faith by example, through worship and during sacramental preparation. We follow our baptismal call as Catholic Christians… to “Go and Make Disciples.”
