Religious Education Program

The Mission of the Religious Education Program of Our Lady of the Cape Parish is to assist parents in the religious, moral, and spiritual formation of their children. Parents are the primary educators of their children, teaching by word and example. Our parish catechists support the parents and students by providing quality religious education in a nurturing, faith-filled environment.

The Confirmation Class of 2018 Confirmation Retreat

The Confirmation class went on a 2 night retreat to the La Salette Retreat Center in Attleboro over Thanksgiving weekend.  Dave Dumaine, Youth Retreat Director, led the retreat.  6 teen of our peer leaders also attended and helped lead the retreat.  The teens came back full of faith and excited about their Confirmation. 

It was awesome!
