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. This year our classes run from September 19, 2017 to March 20, 2018.
