Catholic Catechism/Religious Education
In today’s society, our young children are exposed to a myriad of non-Christian philosophies and teachings. As Christians who practice our beliefs through the teachings of the Catholic Church, we are bound by our faith to raise our children in the ways of Christ. So often this reality is lost in our day-to-day dealings with life. This is why Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal Parish offers the Ministry of Catechesis (Oral Religious Instruction) to those children outside of the Catholic Churches Education System.
It is a two-year journey that culminates with your 2nd and 3rd graders receiving their First Holy Communion. After, they may continue on their Religious Education journey through the 8th grade.
Classes are held every Wednesday from 6:15 p.m. to 7:45 p.m. The journey runs from September through May and the First Holy Communion Mass is normally held on a Saturday in the month of May. Registration is held in July.
For more information, please contact Irma Montreal at (323) 725-7578 extension 312.
All students must register (new and returning).
First Communion Preparation is ALWAYS a two year program. A copy of your child/ren Baptismal Certificate is required.
You can return your application to the Religious Education Office on Wednesdays, from 12noon to 8:00 pm.
Thank you and God bless.
