Confirmation I & II:

Formal Confirmation preparation is a two-year process that begins in 9th grade and culminates with the reception of the Sacrament of Confirmation at the end of 10th grade. Through continued learning, prayer, service, and fellowship, students prepare their hearts for the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

Confirmation I & II:  Classes are on Sundays, 6-7:15 PM at St. Veronica

Grades 1-4:

God loves the little children and they in turn can teach us so much about God!
Religious Education begins in 1st grade with the celebration of
First Penance and First Communion in 2nd grade.

Each year is important as they all build upon each other and invite children into a deeper friendship with Jesus Christ.

Grades 1-4:  Classes are on Sundays, 10:05 – 10:55 AM at St. Veronica or Mondays, 4:10 – 5:00 PM at St. Thomas More

Grades 5-8:

Grade 7 & 8: Classes are on Wednesdays, 5:45 – 6:45 PM at St. Veronica
