PREP CLASSES - September thru April - Wednesday afternoons - 3:15-4:35PM

The Religious Education Program of St. Rose of Lima Parish functions under a Philosophy which has the beauty and tradition of the Catholic Faith both as its heritage and its springboard to a course of religious formation and educational excellence.

Our Program is successful because of the many volunteers who give of their time and talent to help our children grow into, or deepen, their relationship with God, Mary, and the Saints.

We welcome Parish children from the age of 5 and above as we strive to develop in each child a positive self-image where they will come to reverence the Gifts of Life in all its forms.

We are always looking for helpers, either as Teachers or Aides, willing to give an hour or so each week to emhance our staff and to provide even more help to our children. If interested, please call Sister Katie, 610-876-6128, leave a message on the tape and Sister will return your call.



Registering in our PREP Program tells us you are serious about our faith and you want your child/children to be instructed in our faith. To help you with this, you must know we require weekly attendance at Holy Mass.
