The Elementary religious Education Program at Sacred Heart Parish has as its goal to develop in the child a sense of belonging to a Faith Community which is identified by its beliefs in Jesus Christ as well as the writings and teachings of the Catholic Church.

The program is staffed by capable and conscientious volunteers who are provided on-going education and diocesan certification. However, it is important to note that Religious Education is both formational and informational. It is the primary responsibility of the parents to oversee both aspects! The structure of the program is meant to assist in this regard but basically through information, using text-book instruction, media, art, music, games and discussion. Some formational aspects of prayer and liturgical experiences are certainly included. However, it is paramount that the primary formational part of living out worship on Sunday as well as Christian values in everyday life be assumed by the parents and guardians. It is only together that we can build the Church of tomorrow. With this in mind, parent and family gatherings are periodically scheduled.

Classes meet weekly in the Sacred Heart school building: Grades 1-4 on Tuesday afternoons from 3:45-5:00 p.m. and Grades 5-7 on Tuesday evenings from 7:00-8:15 p.m. Classes begin in mid-September and end in early May. Usually, no classes are held during days designated as holidays by either the Public School or Sacred Heart Church.

In addition, information may be obtained through the Religious Education Office regarding "SAREH", a Sunday alternative home-based religious education program that is available for some grades.
