The Religious Education Program (Pre-K-7th)
St. Anselm Catholic Church welcomes all children (PreK-7th grade), regardless of previous formation and sacramental preparation, to enroll in our Religious Education Program.

The Program is made up of two phases, the curriculum-based phase which takes place in the classroom (during covid this will be on zoom) and the liturgical phase which takes place immediately following at the 10:00AM family Mass.
This year we will continue to use Pflaum Gospel Weeklies which provides lessons based on the Gospel readings. We have our classrooms in multi-age grouping in order to build community through the grade levels and so each child is at one point or another a mentor to a younger grade or being mentored by an older grade. This structure promoted both independent and collaborative learning.
Tk-1: Promise Classroom
3-5: Ventures Classroom
6-7: Visions Classroom
[Children in the 2nd grade or older and in need of receiving First Reconciliation/ First Communion, please register for our Sacramental Preparation Program and not our Religious Education Program click here . If your child is in first grade but already 7 years old by the time our classes start, you can petition to have him/her join the sacrament year instead of waiting till he/she is in 2nd grade.
Children in 8th grade through 12th grade and in need of being confirmed, are welcome to register for our Confirmation Program click here .]
