CRE (Christian Religious Education):
The Christian Religious Education (CRE) Program is religious education classes for children in grades 1st – 8th, in public, private and non-Catholic schools. Through “catechesis”, children learn about the teachings of Christ transmitted by the Apostles to the Church. Because catechesis is the responsibility of the entire faith community, this mission of the Church is entrusted to every baptized Catholic. Bishops, priests and deacons exercise catechetical ministry by ordination. Others, such as the CRE Catechists and Catechist Aides, participate in this responsibility through a commissioning to carry out a specific catechetical activity.
The CRE Classes (grades 1 – 8) meet on Tuesday evenings from 6:30 – 8:00 PM at IHM School. Our classes run from September to March and registration will be available on-line at the end of June. If you were in the CRE Program last year, an email will be sent out with a link provided for the registration.
