Religious Education 

The mission of St. Patrick’s & St. Joseph's-Amelia Religious Education program is to assist parents of public school students in grades PreK-6 in the Catholic formation of their children. Parents are the first and primary teachers of their children’s Catholic faith. The program works with the parents in passing down the fundamental teachings of our Catholic faith, preparing the children to live out their faith in today’s world.

Classes begin in September. St. Patrick's classes are held in the St. Mary’s Grade School classrooms on Wednesday evenings from 6:30pm - 7:30pm. St. Joseph's-Amelia classes are held at the Chambers Community Center on the first Wednesday evening of the month  from 6:00pm - 7:00pm.
