Some people brought children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them and to pray for them, but the disciples scolded the people.  Jesus said, “Let the children come to me and do not stop them, because the Kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."

Matthew 19:13-14

Welcome to St. Gabriel's Religious Education!  Our program at St. Gabriel's is focused on providing K-5th children with the opportunity to learn the history and foundation of the Catholic Church, gain an understanding of the seven sacraments, and grow in a personal relationship with God on their own faith journey.  K-5th students are placed in grade-level classes with class sizes averaging 12 students.   Students are given the opportunity not only to grow as individuals but to grow as a community with other children from the parish.  Each class is led by a volunteer catechist and assistant.  Classes meet once a week.  Recognizing parents as the primary catechists in their children's lives, the Religious Education staff provides families with the tools and coaching they need to enrich the faith growth of their children. 


Children ages 6-14 who wish to receive the sacrament of Baptism may enroll in our program.  We will guide your family through the process of preparing for the sacraments of initiation and reconciliation.  Students must be enrolled for two consecutive years to receive these sacraments.

Our Catechists and aides are volunteers.  Each adult volunteer has to complete a safe environment training course.  


Families are encouraged to continue the faith formation of their children after they receive the sacrament of Holy Communion.  There is so much more to learn as they grow in their faith and continue on the journey. 


Classes run October- May
