We, the Parish Religious Education Program (PREP), (formally known as CCD or catechismstrive to nurture and deepen the faith of St. Bede families through our commitment to faith-filled and family centered catechesis.

Our mission is to make our Catholic faith come alive in the hearts, minds and actions of St. Bede children and their families. Forming a partnership with families, we seek to connect faith to the everyday lives of our children by way of textbook and Bible work, music, story telling, crafts and liturgies. We use the public school calendar, meeting August through May. As of now, our classes are held via Zoom and described below.  Our plan is to go to in-person classes come August , 2021, following all health guidelines. Pre-School will continue to meet during the 9:00 Mass and grade 1-6 will meet from 10:05 -10:55am, allowing attendance at either the 9:00am Mass or the 11:00am Mass. 

  • Our pre-school class consists of a combined Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten classes ( 4 & 5 year olds) Sunday mornings prior to the 11:00am Sunday live stream Mass. Our team of catechists have come up with ways to keep your student engaged and excited about learning the faith!
  • We offer elementary classes for grades 1-6 on Sunday mornings that will distance learn with semi-monthly check-ins with our catechists (10:15-10:55am) with Zoom time beginning in September. 

Registration fees for the program are:
$125.00 per registered parishioner;
$100.00 per additional family member;
$175.00 per student for non-registered parishioners.

No family will be turned away from our program due to financial difficulties. Please contact Moira Arjani regarding scholarship information.
