2018-2019 Religious Education

St.  Catherine of Siena's Parish Religious Education Program is designed to  help parents and guardians to pass on the gift of the Catholic Faith to  their children, helping to form children and parents together in  stronger discipleship.  Parents are “the first teachers of their  children in the ways of faith,” as the Church prays at Baptism.  Our  Religious Education program assists parents in that irreplaceable role. 


The  Sacraments of Reconciliation and First Holy Communion are celebrated in  Grade 3, while the Sacrament of Confirmation is celebrated in Grade 8.   Students are required to attend special workshops to prepare them for  the reception of these Sacraments. Please note that St. Catherine’s does  not accept transfers into the 8th grade from other parishes.


Our  dedicated Catechists give witness to Jesus’ love by teaching and  helping our children live the Gospel in their daily lives. All Religious Education classes are held in the school. The Registration Form is available below;  please print and mail the form to the parish office.


For more information regarding the Religious Education program, please contact our Interim Director of Religious Education, Father Luke P. Suarez at RelEd@stcatherinetrumbull.com. All registrations should be sent to the email box: support@stcatherinetrumbull.com
