Register Now for Religious Ed Classes!

Please sign your child up for 2012-13 Religious Education classes!

Classes are required for students in grades 1 & 2 and 7 & 8 to prepare to receive the sacraments of Holy Communion and Confirmation. 

You can print a Registration Form and mail it to or drop it off at the parish office. 

We have a class for every child including the following scenarios:

1st & 7th Grade

If you have a first or seventh grade student this year, please be aware that sacramental preparation for First Communion and Confirmation is a two year program.  Therefore, if you would like for your child to receive Holy Communion during his second grade year or Confirmation after his eighth grade year, you must register your child for first or seventh grade this year.

4th – 8th Grade (Prep for Holy Communion)

Do you have a child in fourth through eighth grade that has not yet received the sacrament of Holy Communion?  If so, you can register your child for a special class that will prepare older children for the sacraments of Penance and Holy Communion.

9th – 12th Grade (Prep for Holy Communion or Confirmation)

If you have a ninth, tenth, eleventh, or twelfth grade student who has not yet received the sacrament of Confirmation or Holy Communion, please contact the Religious Education Office at 703-433-6564 to make arrangements.  It’s not too late to receive this great grace of God!


If you are home schooling your child in second or eighth grade this year, please contact the Religious Education Office to enable his or her reception of the sacraments of First Holy Communion or Confirmation.  You will not need to attend Religious Education classes but you will need to register.
