Religious Education PreK-5

The Phone Number for Religious Ed is 443-981-3187

We offer two options for formal Elementary Religious Education here at the parish.
First, is our in class option for Pre-School through 5th grade.
This option consists of a classroom setting with a volunteer catechist and often an aide.
Classes participate in various prayer experiences, church tours and social justice opportunities
that are grade level appropriate to help nurture the Church’s Mission.

Please find the schedule for our Preschool through 5th Grade Sessions AND all Home Study Here:

Second is our Family Home Study option.
Our first Home Study Meeting for the 2017-2018 year will be on Friday October 20, 2017 at 6:30PM in the Msgr. McCall Center.
This option is family based with parents usually taking on the role of catechist.
Often grandparents or neighbors combine to assist in making this type of religious
education a community responsibility. This program requires families to attend 4 gatherings
on the St. Mark campus throughout the year.
Students are required to turn in Unit Reviews on a regular basis or to use the online Chapter Review links. Completion of the student materials is expected no later than June 30th.
