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.

Classes begin in October 2020.

We will meet twice a month on zoom at 9am and the other weeks will be independent work.

Schedule for 2020-2021, Click here.

The Program is made up of two phases, the curriculum-based phase which takes place in the classroom and the liturgical phase which takes place immediately following at the 10:00AM family Mass.

Loyola Press, Finding God,  is a comprehensive program that integrates learning for children through lessons, artwork, music, games, activities and prayer. The curriculum is based on a teaching method known as “spiral curriculum” that integrates the fundamental themes of the Catechism of the Catholic Church with Scripture and Catholic Social Teachings. As children are introduced to and revisit concepts and vocabulary from one year to the next, their knowledge and experience both broaden and deepen. This program provides lessons in the faith and delivers those lessons through experiential activities that encourage lifelong practice.

Parents may access a wealth of online materials and learn more about the program by going to:
