Over 100 children from 34 families take part in the St. John XXIII Parish Catechism program each Sunday from September to May. We have a full and accredited series of religious instructions for children in grades K through 12. All of our teachers are knowledgeable and devout Catholics who have fulfilled the requirements for “Protecting God’s Children,” as well as other diocesan requirements. Classes are held at the St. Ambrose School building on Haslage Ave., on Sundays at 9:15 AM.
Donuts and drinks (milk, juice, coffee, and tea) are available in the cafeteria each week before classes begin.
Regulations and Registration
Parents of students new to our program must submit a copy of their children’s Baptismal Certificates with their registration. Only families who are registered parishioners of St. John XXIII Parish are permitted to register their children for these classes. Children of registered parishioners receiving the sacraments of First Penance, First Communion, and Confirmation are to be in our program for two years.
