Saint Teresa of Avila PREP (Parish Religious Education Program)
At STA, our children grow in faith and in the joy of being Catholic. Our comprehensive Religious Education program from Level 1 to Level 7 supports parents in their role as primary educators in the faith of their children. We also prepare our students for the sacraments, including First Reconciliation, First Holy Communion and Confirmation. Our program also includes Family Service Projects to introduce children to the joy of serving others. Our ultimate aim is to encourage our students to practice their faith and become disciples of Jesus.
Sacramental preparation for all parish students occurs in level 2 (First Reconciliation),
Level 3 (Eucharist) and Level 7 (Confirmation). All parish children in levels 1-6 who attend public or non-Catholic private schools should attend PREP. Classes meet on Monday evenings from 6:30 to 7:45 PM from September through May. Level 7 will meet on Tuesday evenings from 6:30 to 8:00PM. If you are interested in volunteering, wish to be on a tuition payment plan or are interested in home school opportunities for faith formation please contact the CRE.
