Welcome to St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church Religious Education!
Catechesis is more than just religious education—it is a life-long journey of conversion. Our goal is to bring our children to Christ, to prepare them for the sacramental life of the church, and to help them understand the social justice implications of discipleship as we integrate prayer into their lives. We as a church cannot do this alone and will need the parents help in assisting with each child’s journey. Students will have homework assignments and are expected to attend Mass.
Religious Education classes (K-5 through 10):
Religious Education classes start on Wednesday, August 22, 2017, according to Greenville county academic calendar and emergency dismissal timing. Classes are from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm. A meal is provided from 5:45 pm to 6:15 pm. Please make every attempt to be on time and prepared for class.
