The Religious Education program at St. Charles is provided for children of our parish who attend public schools. Classes are held for 3 year olds through the 8th grade. It includes preparation for the sacraments of Reconciliation, First Eucharist, and Confirmation. We average 650 children in our classes, which are taught by parishioner volunteers. There are ordinarily about 66 classes conducted by approximately 100 volunteers. The program Coordinator is Mrs. Patricia Hafner.
Reconciliation / First Eucharist – In addition to regular classes, 2nd Graders and their parents prepare for the reception of the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Reconciliation with several opportunities throughout the year. These consist of a parents meeting, practices, and a banner night. Reconciliation typically takes place in February and First Eucharist typically in the beginning of May.
Confirmation – Towards the end of 7th grade, our students begin preparations for the Sacrament of Confirmation. Throughout their 8th Grade year, they will participate in service projects, a retreat, and an interview night all in preparation for the Sacrament. Confirmation typically occurs around the beginning of March.
