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.

PreKindergarten

Watch for information on Mommy and Me playgroups.

First Grade – Eighth Grade

Our program offers in-person lessons and activities held weekly in both small group and multi-age classes following 8:30 am Mass, from 9:30 – 11 am.  Students and families are encouraged to attend 8:30 Mass, since Mass Journals are part of the Religious Education curriculum.  Social distancing and masks must be observed.

 

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

We confirm our candidates in the 10th grade. Our 2-year program begins in the 9th grade.  

Confirmation I sessions are offered on Sunday mornings from 9:30 -11AM ending in May. There are also additional events and service projects.  Students are encouraged to attend 8:30 am Mass prior to weekly Confirmation classes.

Confirmation II sessions are offered on Sunday mornings from 9:30 -11AM ending in March. Sessions include a combination of lessons, community service and a 2-night retreat (as COVID restrictions allow).  Students are encouraged to attend 8:30 am Mass prior to weekly Confirmation classes.
