PREP (Parish Religious Education Program)


Welcome families!  

The Parish Religious Education Program (PREP) assists parents in their role as the primary educators of the Catholic Faith.  This program aims to support parents with this key responsibility: to nurture their child’s journey to come to know, love and serve God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  Sacramental preparation for First Reconciliation, First Holy Communion and Confirmation is an important component of this program.

PREP provides catechesis for children attending Public School,  Private non-Catholic School, and for children who are Home-Schooled (Kindergarten – Grade 7).  PREP is a 7-year religious education program designed to run parallel to a child’s elementary school education, with options for older children.   Weekly classes are held on Tuesday evenings, beginning September 10, 2019 through to May 5, 2020 from 6:15 to 7:30 pm in the school.   We have a wonderful team of trained volunteer Catechists and Assistants leading PREP classes (with a minimum of 2 catechists/grade) in keeping with the mandate and learning outcomes of the Office of Catechetics (Archdiocese of Vancouver).

Parents are invited to join their children for closing prayer each week in the gym at 7:20pm.

Help is always welcome!  If you’re considering lending your talents to PREP and would like to know more about the many different opportunities available to share your faith in this ministry, please email.
