Religious Education 




Serving over 800 children each year, the Religious Education department is one of the largest, and busiest, branches of Mary Immaculate. We seek to help parents and their children encounter the love of God and enter into a relationship with Christ and his Church. To this end, we seek to partner with parents to pass on our Catholic faith to the children of our community by supporting them with faith-filled and formed catechists, resources for the whole family that are faithful to the teaching of the Church, and a religious education staff dedicated to serving the varied needs of our families and students.

Your Child at Mary Immaculate 

Religious Education

The Religious Education department at Mary Immaculate offers faith formation and sacramental preparation for children from PK - 6th grade. If your child has been baptized, he or she is eligible for our religious education program. If your child has not been baptized, please refer to our R.C.I.A. Adapted for Children listed later on this page. 

Altar Server Training

Encourage your child to participate more in the Holy Mass by volunteering as an Altar Server. To qualify as an altar server, your child must at least be in 4th grade and complete a basic training class with our Altar Server Trainer.

Children with Disabilities

All children deserve an opportunity to learn about the Good News of Jesus Christ regardless of ability. Given the unique nature of each child, all programs are custom built by our Religious Education Director, Caroline Wilks. To learn more, please contact the Religious Education office. 

R.C.I.A. adapted for children

R.C.I.A. Adapted for Children was developed for the children of our parish who are 7 years old and older and have not yet been baptized. This process walks your child through the story of Jesus Christ and the beauty that is found in the Catholic Church. To inquire, please contact the Religious Education office.
