P.R.E.P. (formally known as CCD) is a religious education program available to parish children from preschool (age 3) through eighth grade. Through P.R.E.P., our parish provides education in the faith for those unable to benefit from the Catholic school system. The program is staffed by the DRE with volunteer catechists (teachers, co-teachers and aides) sought from the congregation. Catechists must be confirmed Catholics, high school graduates, with no canonical impediments to the sacraments. Aides may be under 18 and currently in high school. All instruction is faithful to the Magisterium of the Church. Texts used are in conformity with the Catechism of the Catholic Church and approved for use in the Diocese of Philadelphia.
This year’s registration will be held io September 6, 2015 following the 9 am and 11 am Masses in the parish gathering room at the parking lot entrance of the church.
