Our Parish Religious Education Program
Our Parish Religious Education Program

The main focus of our Parish Religious Education Program (PREP) is to assist families in forming children who know and love Jesus plus desire to do good while serving God’s people. Participating in weekly class, activities at church and celebrating the liturgical seasons throughout the year, our students are able learn about Jesus, his great love, and how to live as a Christian.

Our PREP program is for children in first grade through eighth grade. Children make the sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Eucharist in second grade and Confirmation in eighth grade. Students will complete their assignments virtually each week by Monday or Tuesday. Catechists will be available every Monday and Tuesday, evening from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. via Zoom to answer student questions. Due to COVID concerns the students will participate virtually from September 2020 through January 2021 and perhaps until May 2021.


New families must be registered in our parish prior to enrolling in PREP. To learn how to register with Our Lady of Guadalupe, please check out our
