Classes are offered for the following times:

Tuesday afternoon from 4:30 to 5:45 for Levels K through 8

Tuesday evening from 6:45 to 8:00 for Levels 1 through 8.

The Parish Religious Education Program of Our Lady of Grace Parish commits to leading the children of the parish to a relationship with God in the Catholic Tradition.

Following the example of Jesus, the members of the PREP community will grow in the knowledge of the Catholic faith, become devout in the practice of that faith, and reach out to the community by sharing their Christian values.

Parent Commitment

Parents are an integral and important part of our program. Our Catechists and Aides all give of their time and talents and we are most grateful. Parents also serve as Hall Monitors and office help. We invite you to share with us some of your time and talent as we lead your children to grow in their faith. Please call the office if you feel called to be part of this important ministry.

Out of Parish?

A letter from the parish your are registered at must state that your children may attend our PREP program and all Sacraments may be received at Our Lady of Grace or otherwise.  A copy of your child’s Baptismal certificate and any other Sacrament information must be given at the time of registration.   Out of Parish tuition must be paid in full at the time of registration.

What if my child has special needs?

Children with special needs may prepare for and receive Confirmation and 1st Communion with their peers as long as they are able to participate in the rites with reverence. Using the student’s IEP and other pertinent information provided by a parent, we will collaborate to develop a plan of sacramental preparation consistent with each child’s abilities. For more information, contact Christine Flack (215)757-5530 or email her at dre@olg1.org.
