Parish Religious Education (PRE) classes are offered Sept thru May for grades 4-yr old preschool thru grade 8 for children who do not receive Catholic religious education during their normal school day. Classes are held Wed evenings from 6:30-7:30pm. VISIONS, our program for junior high, will be held from 6-7:30 in the parish gym on Weds.

If you have a love for children and would like to share your faith with others, please consider being a team teacher for our PRE program.

First Penance & First Holy Communion is a 2-year preparation requirement. Attendance in our 1st grade PRE classes (or enrollment at St. Jude School) is a necessary and vital component to preparation and reception of our sacraments in the 2nd grade.

Beginning in August, PRE registration forms can be picked up in the church vestibule, in the parish office, or can be found at Church website. You must turn in forms no later than Friday, Sept 8.

Our Helping Hands ministry is in need of new volunteers. Helpers are needed for a variety of jobs, from visiting the homebound and providing transportation to Mass, to preparing food and assisting with yard work or minor household repairs. Helping others in need is not only asked of us as Christians, it also can produce abundant blessing of joy and gratitude in our own lives. And as our mothers always said, the best way to get your mind off your own troubles is to help someone else! If you can help, please contact Katy Helms at 652-6589
