2017-2018 Religious Education Calendar

It is that time of the year again when the weather can be unpredictable. In the event of bad weather we will attempt to make the best possible decision regarding classes.  We may not always get it right, but neither does the weatherman!  We will make all weather decisions by 4 PM.

           In the event of a cancellation, email notifications will be sent to the addresses on file, closing announcements will be on the Parish Website, ABC27 website and ABC27 news channel, which will scroll across the top or the bottom of the screen.




1. To provide a context where the individual may learn about God and his creative love.
2. To help form a person who is aware of his/her dignity and responsibility as a Catholic Christian.
3. To assist each family in the parish in the religious education of its members.
4. To provide a basic knowledge of Catholic doctrine and the practices of our Faith.


St. Patrick’s religious education program (CCD) is designed to comply with standards set by the Diocesan Education Office and the United States Council of Catholic Bishops.


The Religious Education (CCD) year begins Wednesdays in September for youth in grades K-5 from 6:30-7:45pm. Please see the bulletin for more information. Classes are dismissed for holidays and other Holy days of obligation. The program closes near the end of April. A detailed schedule is distributed in September.


Because of the significant number of families that move in and out of the parish area each year it is necessary that every new family register for religious education as soon as possible and each existing family must re-register. The registration forms will be handed out to current participants or you may down load them from this website. Registration MUST be returned by June 1. We will not register a child on the first CCD night. The fee for Religious Education (CCD) is $80.00 per child with the 4th child free. If for a good reason you cannot pay the fee please contact the Coordinator of Religious Education.

Home Program

The parish offers a home program in religious education that uses the same material and textbooks as the CCD program. The children in the home program are responsible for the same text standards as children in the CCD program. Please contact the religious education office for more information. The fee for this program is the same as the regular CCD program.

Home School

Students who are home schooled in a Catholic Home School program must register with the Religious Education Program so that you will be informed about Sacrament Programs. You may use the programs that you choose but you must participate in the Parish programs for Sacrament Preparation. There is no fee for this.
