PREP (Parish Religious Education Program) for students in Grades 1 through 8 who attend public school is held on Monday evenings from 6:30 to 7:45 PM in the Parish School building. Classes run from September to May. The program’s mission is to assist parents in their primary role as educators of their children in the Catholic faith. The program provides sound catechesis on the teachings of the faith so that children may be formed in the Catholic tradition.

UPDATE ~ April 6, 2020

Given the new guidelines are in place until at least April 30th, it is sad to say our physical PREP year is over. It feels very unfinished to me and I know we all didn’t get to say goodbye. I have put together a video with messages from some of our PREP teachers to all our students. We have all grades represented in one way or another. All our volunteers miss their students and send all their love and prayers. Many of our PREP volunteers are working their full time jobs in the medical field, as police officers and first responders, employees at our local grocery stores and other essential businesses during this time. I want to publicly thank all our volunteers. They have a special love for your children and hold them close to their hearts. We would not have a PREP program without them.



 MARCH 24, 2020

Gov. Wolf has announced that all schools in PA will remain closed through at least Monday, April 6, 2020. This also applies to PREP. An email will be sent to all families as to when we will resume PREP classes.

Please see the message below from the Archdiocese. As of now, we will plan to resume PREP on
March 30th.
Let’s never forgot:

In every decision concerning our schools and parish religious education program, our guiding principle is to care for the safety and welfare of our students, their families, our employees, and those who visit our school and parish communities. In order to meet our responsibilities to those entrusted to our care and those who collaborate with us each day to provide the gift of Catholic education, we are announcing that ALL high schools, parish and regional elementary schools, schools of special education, PREP programs, and early learning centers in the five-county Archdiocese will close through Friday, March 27, 2020. The previous decision to suspend all extra-curricular and co-curricular activities including retreats, athletic events both on and off school grounds, field trips, and social events planned by elementary, secondary, and special education schools throughout the entire five-county Archdiocese stands. That suspension of activities will last through Friday, March 27th and be re-evaluated pending future developments
