Parish Religious Education Program (PREP)

St. Patrick’s Parish Religious Education Program (PREP) is offered for students in grades one through eight who do not attend Catholic school. PREP gives these parish children the opportunity to have their Catholic faith nurtured through formation and instruction in scripture and Church Tradition, prayer and worship, community, and service by catechists who work in two-person teams. PREP happens from 9:45 to 10:45 a.m. on Sunday mornings [between the 8:30 and 11 a.m. masses], Sept. 8 through May 3, 2020 in the Bowling Commons, which is one level below the Church.

The fee for PREP is $50 per student, $150 maximum for any family. All children are accepted into the program regardless of ability to pay the registration fee.  A waiver can be obtained by making your need known to Mr. Tim Grove, director of faith formation, at 502-719-0362 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
