Religious Education

A Letter from the Religious Education Coordinator:

My family and I have been parishioners at Infant Jesus Prague for 27 years. My husband Robert and I have two daughters, Taylor ’05 and Sophia ’12, both graduates of IJP School. I have had the pleasure of being involved in many aspects of parish life here at IJP, one being a catechist in our Religious Education program.

I am excited to welcome the children of IJP and our RMC parishes. We are fortunate to have in person instruction this year. Registration for the 2021-2022 Religious Education school year will be after Masses on the weekend of August 14/15 in the Church Hall. By registering your child/children on August 14/15 weekend, the tuition will remain the same as last year. One child $105.00, 2 children $130.00, 3 or more $145.00. Any registration taking place after August 14/15 will result in the higher pre COVID tuition rates,One child $260.00, 2 children $310.00, 3 or more $340.00.

Religious Education at IJP takes many forms, depending on one’s age and spiritual background. Our Religious Education (RE) program enrolls public school children from grades 1 through 8. This ministry provides children with the means to develop and nurture their faith life and a personal relationship with God while preparing them for the sacraments of Reconciliation and the Holy Eucharist in the 2nd grade and Confirmation in the 8th grade.

Religious Education classes will begin on Wednesday, September 29, 2021 at 5 pm. there is still time to register your child/children
