PREP (Parish Religious Education Program)
Our PREP program is open to children in grades 1-7 from October to May.
Grades 1, 3, 4, 5 & 6 meet on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of every month from 9 to 10AM
Grades 2 and 7 meet on the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Wednesday of every month from 6:30 to 7:30PM
(days and times subject to change)
For children/youth who will celebrate the Sacraments of Reconciliation, Eucharist and/or Confirmation, the policy at Our Lady of the Visitation Parish is: "Children/youth must attend classes in religious education the year prior to, and the year of, the reception of these sacrament."
We celebrate First Reconciliation and First Eucharist in the 2nd grade and Confirmation in the 7th grade.
In order tp participate in First Communion, you must attend 1st and 2nd grade PREP classes. In order to participate in Confirmation, you must attend 6th and 7th grade PREP classes.
The cost is $80 for a registered parishioner and $150 for non-parishioners.
Our goal is to have students fully engaged in their religious education and in parish life.
