Religious Education

Mission Statement

The Religious Education Program at St. Veronica Parish seeks to instill in students from First to Eighth Grade a deep love for Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church.  Our goal is, that through prayer, Scripture, faith education, service to others, and the celebration of the Sacraments, students will become alive in their Catholic faith and desire to serve God and His Church.

The Religious Education program begins each year in October and ends in mid-May.  Students in Grades 3 through 8 are offered the opportunity to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation throughout the year.

First Sacrament of Reconciliation is celebrated in December of Grade Two, and First Holy Communion in May of Grade Two.  The Sacrament of Confirmation is celebrated in May of Eighth Grade.  Sacraments are preceded by a two-year preparation program. Mass attendance is required of all religious education students.
