The Religious Education Program offers instruction in levels 1 through 8. Classes provide our young people with a catechesis based on sacred scripture, tradition, liturgy, teaching and the life of the Church. Each child will complete eight levels of instruction during this time. We have students attending from fifteen schools, both public and private, encompassing a geographic area of Oyster Bay/East Norwich and beyond. Each child starts class with prayer, which fosters a sense of community whereby the children come to awareness that this is not an extension of their school day but rather a special time where they come to encounter Jesus and deepen their faith. The children visit the Church during their class time, becoming familiar with the various symbols and sacramentals, which express our faith in a visible way.
