Children's Religious Education

At Immaculate Conception and St. Joseph Parish we dedicate ourselves to helping families raise their children in the Catholic faith by promoting life-long learning and growth. Teaching Children about the Catholic Faith is first and foremost the privilege and responsibility of parents. That is the reason why we strive to include families in our educational initiatives.

Family Mass

ICSJ Parish celebrates Family Masses during the school year. The Family Masses give families an opportunity to directly participate in the Mass by volunteering to lector, usher, sing in the choir, and take up the gifts. These Masses are a time to celebrate and support the families in our community. We offer coffee and donuts after each Family Mass to provide a chance for families to connect and support one another as they strive to be families of faith.

Sunday Religious Education

We provide Sunday Religious Education classes for children in Pre-School through Eighth Grade. These classes are intended for children not currently attending a Catholic school. 

Religious Education meets Sunday mornings from 9:30-10:45 am in the ICSJ School-Hill St. Campus located at 363 W. Hill Street. We offer small classes of ten or less students that are led by volunteer catechists who are trained and mentored by our Director of Religious Education. While students are in class, we invite parents to remain in the cafeteria for coffee and conversation.  We highly value the feedback of parents, all are welcome to provide end-of-the-year insights through an evaluation form.

Classes are taught from an approved Religion text, and also include time for prayer and discussion. Every session begins when the entire community – students, teachers, and even parents – gathers together for morning prayer in the cafeteria. Students then go to their classrooms for age appropriate instruction.
