WELCOME TO OUR sT. elizabeth seton 

religious education program

The St. Elizabeth Seton Religious Education Program provides religious formation and sacramental preparation to children in grades K-8 and is designed to supplement the religious formation that parents, by their word and example, provide to the youth of the parish.


The faith formation of your child(ren) is a splendid responsibility. Family and our faith community are interwoven by our beliefs. We aspire to bring your child(ren) into a deeper relationship with God, family, friends and community.  


Your example of putting your faith into action daily by living a faithful Christian life and attending Mass helps your child(ren) know how to be a good disciple. We greatly admire your dedication. Thank you for inviting us to participate actively in helping your child(ren) grow in their Catholic faith. 


All classes will be held in the classrooms of the Cardinal Joseph Bernardin School.


Classes are offered on Mondays, at two class times.

Grades  1 - 5    4:30 - 6:00 PM

Grades  1 - 8     6:30 - 8:00 PM

(Grades 6, 7 & 8 classes are held from 6:30-8:00 PM only)


"Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude." - Denis Waitley


May God bless every day to the fullest!
