Religious Education Program

Welcome to Our Lady of the Cape’s 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.

First Grade – Eighth Grade

Our program offers in-person lessons and activities held weekly in both small group and multi-age classes 9:00 AM to11:00 AM including attendance at 10:00 AM Mass.  Students may sit with their families or their class.

First Communion

First Communion and First Reconciliation are celebrated in the 2nd Grade. Children must have attended religious education in the 1st grade prior to entering the 2nd grade first communion class. Communion specific sessions are included in  weekly lessons.  Sessions for older children wishing to celebrate sacraments are also offered.

 

 

Confirmation

Confirmation is a 2 -year process beginning in 9th grade. We confirm our candidates in the 10th grade.

Confirmation I & II classes will meet twice a month on Sunday mornings starting at the10:00AM Mass to 1:00PM for Sacramental preparation. Each session will build upon the prior session, therefore unnecessary absences should be avoided.  A light lunch will be served.  If your child has any dietary restrictions please send them with their lunch.
