The Shrine Church of St. Jude Religious Education program  has already begun.  Please see below for information about our program.  Next Sunday class will meet October 17, 2021
Religious Education Grades  1 - 7 

To comply with the directives of the Diocese and to continue to keep the expected days off, the Sunday Religious Education Program will now meet for two hours on Sunday between the hours of 10:00 am - 12 noon.  The Religious Education teachers will not be responsible for taking the children to Mass.  This responsibility will be on the parents.  The time of our program has changed to allow the parents  to take their children to either the 8:30 AM Mass or the 12:30 PM Mass.   For parents who elect to attend the 8:30 Mass - there will be an early drop-off beginning at 9:30 AM. 

Family Participation - Normally we would ask our families join in and celebrate as an entire community, three times during the year.  Unfortunately, this year we are not able to do so.  Let's hope that we will be able to celebrate our last meeting on  Pentecost Sunday, Closing Day - June 5th.

Sunday Religious Education fee (grades 1 -7) is $100 for the first child & 150 for two or more.

First Holy Communion/Penance - The Sacrament of Penance will be celebrated in March and the sacrament of First Holy Communion will be celebrated in May.  Prior to receiving the sacraments, children with their parents are required to attend four preparation meetings during the scheduled class times.  (Dates, times and additional information will be provided at a later date.)

Confirmation  - Students must be in at least 8th Grade and have had at least 2 years of formal Religious Education (Catholic school or Religious Ed) prior the current year to be eligible to receive this sacrament.  

  • Confirmation Class for 2021/2022 school year will began October 2nd.

  • Confirmation classes  meet on TWO Saturday afternoons a month,  4:00 pm - 6:30 pm.  This time includes the 5:30 Mass which is mandatory.

  • Students will be required to complete assigned lessons prior to class.

  • Confirmation fee is $150. $50 is due in September.
