Greetings to All Current and Prospective OLPH RE families!

OLPH RE Registration 2021-2022

Please register your children now online for the OLPH RE 2021-22 school year at our OLPH RE website. See the News page or the Registration drop-down list on the home page. Go to https://www.olphre.org.

Please contact Margaret Waldron if you have any questions or concerns.

According to Archdiocesan guidelines, we are planning to resume full enrollment and in-class programming in the 2021-22 school year. A $50 late registration fee will be applied per family on August 15, 2021, so please register now. If you register after August 15, your children’s materials also may be delayed due to late registration. Thank you for registering your children for OLPH Religious Education.

We are delighted that you are here!

Catechists are needed for 2021-2022 School Year- Serving the Lord with gladness!

We are seeking more good catechists to join our catechetical team! A good catechist will help to teach and form disciples to bring about God’s Kingdom here on earth by touching minds and souls with knowledge and understanding; by touching hearts with experiences of story, prayer, ritual, and Sacrament; and by touching hands and feet by inspiring witness to our faith in Jesus Christ and his Church lived out in our OLPH parish community.

Please contact me if you are willing to serve as a catechist this school year.

OLPH RE 2021-2022 begins September 19, 2021

We will begin our OLPH RE Program at Catechetical Sunday morning Mass on Sun. Sept 19 at 10:30 am to celebrate and pray for our beloved Catechists and their faithful service to our OLPH Parish children and families for the upcoming year.
